Brenda and Jax The pair were initially pushed together by Lois Cerullo to make Brenda’s ex, Sonny, jealous, but they quickly developed feelings for each other and marry. However, it turns out he wasn’t fully divorced. Brenda runs back to Sonny, but when left at the altar, the pair reconnects. Through faked deaths, murder charges, and manipulation, the pair couldn’t last.
Scotty and LauraScotty Baldwin met Laura Spencer at General Hospital, where they fell in love. Despite pursuits from his ex and murder charges, the pair married. Their happiness was short-lived when Luke Spencer squeezed his way into the middle of their relationship, ultimately causing the two to divorce. All three have gone their separate ways, but found their way back to Port Charles. Who will win Laura’s heart once and for all?
Sonny and BrendaBefore Sonny reconnected with Kate, he began a relationship with Brenda Barrett and helped Brenda start L&B Records with Lois Cerullo. Sonny’s mob ties make it difficult for the pair to stay together, and Brenda moves on with Jasper “Jax” Jacks. Brenda and Sonny try to reconcile multiple times, finally marrying in 2011, but after run-ins with Jax, Brenda leaves with her son, Alec.
Sonny and Kate Sonny Corinthos and Kate Howard began back when Kate was originally known as Connie Falconeri. After changing her name and becoming an editor at Couture, the two link back up after she moves next door and faces reckless driving charges. Through the craziness of mob ties, illegitimate children, and even mental illness and childhood trauma, the pair has stuck together.
Jax and CarlyJasper “Jax” Jacks and Carly Corinthos owned the Metro Court Hotel. When Jax’s ex dies giving birth to their assumed son, Carly offers to help raise the baby. The baby turns out not to be his, and the pair bond at the loss of the boy and eventually marry. The pair had a child of their own, Josslyn, but couldn’t make their relationship last.
Anna and Duke Anna Devane and Duke Lavery came together at the Port Charles Police Department’s charity ball. Though Duke first wooed Anna to keep the former spy and co–police chief away from his mob ties, the two fell in love and married but not before his secret was revealed. Though Duke tried to leave behind the mob life, his tangles have him abducted overseas for years before he finally reunites with Anna in Switzerland.
Jason and Liz Jason Morgan and Liz Webber first began their romance in the late ’90s, when Morgan comforts Webber after the supposed death of her boyfriend, Lucky Spencer. It took years for the two to link back up and comfort each other again, which results in the birth of their son, Jacob Martin Spencer. Though the two never married, they still shared love for one another and their son, who was struck and killed in March 2011.
Luke and LauraThe pair defined the term supercouple, but came together in the most unconventional way. Their whirlwind romance caused Laura to run off with him to help sever his mob ties, and the couple had two children. Their relationship has taken many turns over the years, but there’s no adventure too big for this dynamic duo.
Sam and Jason Sam and Jason came together after Sam had an affair with Sonny resulting in a pregnancy. Jason helped her out by claiming to be the father and fell in love with her after she lost the baby. With kidnappings, plagues, and even car bombings, the two were strong enough to marry in 2011 and have a baby, which was originally believed to belong to Jason’s fraternal twin, Franco.
