In the spirit of our landmark 2010 50 Greatest Soap Opera Actors and 50 Greatest Soap Opera Actresses countdowns, We Love Soaps has carefully constructed a list of the greatest daytime soap opera super couples of all time and the countdown begins today!
- Celebrate the romance and adventure of our favorite soaps!
- Create a list that is fair, nuanced and comprehensive - and definitive!
- Include "classic" couples and avoid a chronological bias, where we can!
- Remind fans about past favorites and get the soap community talking about love!
- Have fun talking about the most exciting, fascinating, and heartwarming daytime moments of the past and present!
The list was compiled by the We Love Soaps family of contributors as well as some of most respected and knowledgeable friends in the industry including Jonathan Reiner, Connie Passalacqua Hayman (Marlena De Lacroix), Patrick Erwin, Lynn Liccardo and Nelson Aspen. We've also been taking reader submissions and have received several thousand suggestions, many with passionate explanations as to how certain couples made an impact.
So today we begin counting down the Top 50 Soap Couples of All-Time. As we do, please weigh in with your own thoughts. We want the next few weeks to be a wonderful and informative discussion of soap history and your input is invaluable.
