I'm pretty sure the mantra at Days is, "If we say it often enough, eventually the audience will start to believe it."
Well it's not working.

I mean, I get what the writers are trying to do with this. They're trying to get all their ducks in a row for this big "umbrella" Carly story. Breaking up Bo and Hope... getting Carly's secret daughter hitched to the Kiriakis heir and the "son" of Vivian... etc. This story will involve half the town just like the baby switch. It's their next big tale. However, they should've started building this Phillip/Melanie romance months ago if they were planning to marry them in January. It's just too rushed.
I agree the marriage is rushed, but Phillip and Mel are cyrcling around each other for more than a year now. Itīs not like they just met. Phillip first "dreamed" about her at the beginning of last November and from that moment on their relationship always balanced on the thin line between hate and love. Only very few soap couples actually dates, dating is boring. Mel helped Phillip against Owen, they had their close encounters during the AFP storyline, she was there for him when Kate decided to marry Stefano and of course there is the sex-tape episode. No matter who they just dated or claimed they are in love with they always somewhat ended together. Does it mean Mel is ready to get marry? Of course not. But Mel is hopelessly in love with that guy for more than a year and he certainly knows how to sweep girl out of her feet. Itīs not hard to believe he charmes her enough to say yes.
