Last year, we wondered if Bo Brady and Hope Williams would ever get married. Did they? And how! It wasn't your basic, small, hometown affair. Noooo. First, they helped save British royalty from extermination by the Dragon and were rewarded with a magnificent wedding -- in England.

Friends and family were flown across the Atlantic for the celebration, complete with choir. Bo looked unusually dapper (though he didn't get a haircut) and Hope was as beautiful as ever (assisted by a $20,000 gown). The groom did have to escape from the police and steal a horse to get to the church on time, and psycho Emma Donovan did try to assassinate the newlyweds right after the ceremony. And, oh yes, Mr. and Mrs. Brady did spend their wedding night in adjoining prison cells, but what the heck. Bo and Hope have never been a traditional couple -- except for the singular love and devotion they feel for one another.

Although some might say this marriage is a mistake -- has Val really gotten Gary out of her system, will she ever be able to? -- we believe this union is a good one. Valene has certainly had her share of tragedy over the years and the time has come for her to experience a little joy, a little tranquility. Ben Gibson is the man who will help make this happen. Ben loves Val unconditionally. He's willing to raise her twins as his own. He is someone she can love, trust, and lean on. Theirs is a nurturing relationship and hopefully, one that will be long and happy.

It was true love for Mindy. She adored Kurt Corday despite his four-letter affliction: he was poor. Soon after Kurt proposed, Mindy stumbled upon a stash of stolen cash which she secretly used to finance a lavish wedding. Her fairytale ceremony was complete when the groom picked up the wrong wedding attire and would up outfitted as royalty. In typical Lewis fashion, though, the picture-perfect occaision ended in chaos when the father of the bride whipped out a pistol and shot David Preston, and Mindy began her honeymoon in jail!
