The Young and the Restless preview for next week’s episodes of the CBS soap opera tease the spotlight is on Paul (Doug Davidson) and Christine (Lauralee Bell).
CBS is reliving some of the most memorable moments from the on-again-off-again romance of Christine and Paul. The network continues to give fans a fun dose of nostalgia with theme weeks that keep viewers glued to the television.
Next week, the soap opera is going all the way back to 1994 to feature the favorite fan-favorite couple.
A brief history of Paul and Christine
The road to happily ever after was not an easy one for Paul and Christine. They fell in love on the job, but her first love, Danny (Michael Damian) was an issue for years.
Danny wasn’t the only problem Paul and Christine had to overcome. She was always putting her work before him. Then there was his crazy brief marriage to Isabella (Eva Longoria) that happened because Christine left him for a job in Hong Kong.
After discovering Michael (Christian LeBlanc) was plotting with Isabella to keep Christine and Paul apart, they began to find happiness. No, it wasn’t smooth sailing. There were plenty of interferences like secret children, but in 2013, Paul and Christine wed for the last time.
They are still married today. Sadly the characters are rarely seen in Genoa City. Paul and Christine are only brought out for special occasions, or fun lunches with Michael and Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman).
