Find Romance on Days of Our Lives

Find Romance on Days of Our Lives

By Garrett Godwin

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
Those were the words by the late, great MacDonald Carey that has become the opening of Days of Our Lives since 1965.

For more than forty years, Days of Our Lives has been providing us memorable storylines such as the possession of the beloved heroine, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) and watching her wicked daughter, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) turn into the Stan the Man, while continuing to cause trouble for the people of Salem.  However, the key element that has made Days of Our Lives one of daytime's popular soaps is romance.

Days of Our Lives has also been known for its super couples, and none are more stellar than Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso), who is the show's own Luke and Laura (General Hospital) since the 1980s.  Since then, there have been numerous fan favorite super couples such as: 

John and Marlena

Jack and Jennifer (Matthew Ashford and Melissa Reeves)

Patch and Kayla

Austin and Carrie (Austin Reed and Christie Clark)

Shawn and Belle

Brady and Chloe

Lucas and Sami

Abe and Lexie

Like any soap, Days always has the love triangles and conflicts, but in the end, these super couples have always found their way back to each other through the power of love.

If you want a daytime soap that features love overcoming the odds, then watch Days of Our Lives every day on NBC.  Miss it the first time, then see it on SoapNet every night at 11pm, or catch the week's episodes every Sunday night at 7pm.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
