‘The Bold and the Beautiful’: Brooke and Ridge Might Be Done For Good

While other soaps have crashed and burned, The Bold and the Beautiful has survived. Loyal fans continually tune in and lose themselves in the dramatic lives of their favorite couples.

One of the reasons The Bold and the Beautiful has done so well in recent years is they have stayed true to the couples that fans fell in love with decades ago. Brooke and Ridge are one such couple.

For the past 30 years, the pair has managed to both delight and irritate legions of fans.

Just when the pair seem to have settled down, they encounter some new drama that completely changes their relationship.

The current drama, which involves Ridge’s questionable marriage to Shauna, has fans wondering if Brooke and Ridge might be done for good.

Brooke and Ridge have a long history, according to Soap Dirt. The pair first “met” over 30 years ago. In 1987, Brooke was helping her family while they were handling the catering needs of a party at the Forresters.

Even though both are in relationships with other people, they experience a spark. This unexpected connection leads to Brooke hiding a letter Ridge meant for Caroline (his then-girlfriend).

Eventually, Brooke and Ridge share a first kiss and hook up and Brooke loses her virginity. This leads to a complicated, life-long relationship that is full of ups and downs.

The romantic road is never smooth for soap couples, not even the ones who seem destined to be together.

Brooke and Ridge aren’t an exception. While the pair have always been a part of one another’s lives, their history is full of intoxicating highs and heartbreaking lows.

They first married in 1994, though it ultimately appeared that the marriage wasn’t legal. They broke up.

They remarried in 1998 only to have that marriage end in an annulment. 

In 2003, the relationship took an interesting turn when Brooke and Ridge looked like they were about to get married only to have Brooke back out when she was worried that Ridge had developed a thing with one of her daughters.

Once that issue was straightened up, the couple eloped. Ridge “died” shortly after the elopement.

When Brooke learned that Ridge wasn’t dead after all, she remarried him in 2004. Something happened to drive the couple apart. They remarried in 2006. Broke up. Got married twice in 2009.

The relationship crashed and burned only to find its way back to a wedding alter in 2012 and again in 2018.

The couple’s story is full of betrayals, cheating, children, paperwork problems, scandal, and simple misunderstandings. The couple seems to thrive on the drama they continually create for themselves and the people their lives touch.

The trajectory of Brooke and Ridge’s relationship isn’t clear. It appears that they are still in love but it’s a complicated issue. Ridge is currently married to Shauna, though many question the legality of the marriage.

Ridge recently gave a heartfelt plea, confessing his eternal love for Brooke, and she admitted that she loves him as well. Ridge hopes to convince Shauna to annul their current marriage.

The challenge is getting Shauna, who is obsessed with Ridge, to agree.

No one expects Shauna to go down without a fight, so it looks like the immediate future looks shaky for both Brooke and Ridge, but if they can weather this storm, maybe they will finally have an opportunity to stay together forever.

The only way to find out for sure is to continue watching the Bold and the Beautiful.
