Um, Hope is certainly not old enough to have a son in his late 20s. Hope, the character, was born in 1974. That means she would be 34 right now. If you go by when Kristian Alfonso joined the show in 1983, Hope was said to be 18. That would mean that Hope was born in 1965. Still, she would be 43. Shawn is in his late 20s, which would mean that Hope would've had Shawn when she was in her teen years and we all know Hope wasn't a pregnant teenager.

Ages on soaps, especially DAYS, you can never be concrete with ages. However. Sandra Ferguson seems like she would fit in perfectly with Kristian Alfonso in her age group, which is why I said that I would think she would be in that age group and if that's the case, I think she's too old for any of the men mentioned. That would be like Hope being involved with Philip. I just wouldn't want to see it because Philip is the same age as her son and it's weird.

Sandra Ferguson and Darin Brooks or Blake Berris??? You're kidding right. That would be in the same boat as Daniel and Chelsea, if you ask me. I think that would just look ridiculous.
What I meant was, SORASing characters on soaps pretty much screw the family up age wise. As for Sandra, I see her in the category of Sami/Chloe/Rafe/EJ/Lucas being just a tiny bit older than them. So I have no issues if they tried to pair her with any of the guys in that generation class. And to be honest, I'm sick and tired of older men/younger women...so having her go "up" to the veteran generation does not interest me one bit.

Nick with her might be the same as Chan but I don't see Max as being the same. Everyone insists he's some kind of hunky casanova (I don't see it) and now that he's a super genius, he apparently can talk about anything. But maybe I'm just letting my need for them to keep him away from girls he's related to overcome my logical sense.

Also if they had tried to pair Dan up with Morgan and Stephanie, I'd not had a problem with it. My issues began (but certainly not limited to, boy, did Chan have so many problems) how this respected doctor could be interested in the most immature character on the show who looked much younger than she really was. When confronted early on, age difference can be a good story for a couple to try to overcome (Joey/Dorian on OLTL comes to mind) but when the show tries to absolutely ignore it, it angers people including me.

But again, I'm sure we aren't lucky enough for Sandra to be used as a long term character at all. Because...we need to make sure the Passions actors get off the unemployment line.
