Yet, the chemistry between them was undeniable. Jack and Phyllis’ popularity rose with fans nicknaming the couple Phack.

Yet, like many, The Young and the Restless couples split up several times over the years.

Jack Abbott and Phyllis Summers history

Like many of The Young and the Restless characters, Jack and Phyllis are prone to drama. The couple has been through a lot in their two-decade love affair. One of their first obstacles was the return of Jack’s ex-lover Diane Jenkins (Maura West), and the custody battle over Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor).

The couple survived that situation, but Phyllis’ affair with Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) ended their marriage. Jack’s heartbreak grew after learning that Nick was the father of Summer Newman (Hunter King). Despite Phyllis’ betrayal, he and Phyllis remarried years later.

However, once again, they divorced due to Phyllis’ infidelity. This time she slept with Jack’s younger brother Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson). Although Phyllis caused him plenty of pain, he forgave the redhead, and the two remain friends.
