I know what you mean about the fleeting nature of these disposable relationships on soaps - especially GH. But I wasn't talking about expecting any relationship to be particularly long lasting as much as Sonny was between Carly and Jax from the very beginning - trying to force Carly to stay married to him, them sleeping together even though she was engaged to Jax. It just seems to me that the Carly/Jax relationship was set up to be less stable than your average couple from the very beginning due to the presence of Sonny. I just couldn't see myself getting invested in Carly and Jax because of that Sonny factor. And Carly has deceived and betrayed Jax from the very beginning and she's doing it again.Originally Posted by Octoberbaby
So I guess I wonder if such unfavorable and dysfunctional behaviors work against making Carly/Jax a rootable pairing. I guess I'm not making such sense and I should probably be talking Carly/Jax fans to find out the answers to my nebulous, convoluted questions. LOL I just couldn't see myself ever being invested in them as a couple when they have been built on this heavy foundation of deception and betrayal.
I must admit though that no matter how much i HATE the idea of Sonny and Carly reuniting, I do tend to pay way more attention to their scenes together than I do scenes they have with their present partners. I usually always ignore Sonny and Kate because they bore me. And about 70% of the time, I ignore Carly & Jax as well. But I pay a bit more attention to Sonny and Carly even though I hate them together. LOL
OK...question....who would you pair Jax with when he and Carly are done? What type of woman should he have?
