I've often thought about that. There are some recent (semi-recent) examples where real-life couples just don't cut it:
Arianne Zucker and Kyle Lowder didn't bowl a lot of people over. I know there were Bricole fans, but I think, at that time, there just seemed to be more Broe fans.
Farah Fath and John Paul Lavosier on One Life have some fans, but it seems more and more, fans don't care for them together.
I didn't watch Crystal Chappell and Michael Sabinato (Sp?), and aren't they married in real life? How did they click on screen?
For a while, didn't Shelley Hennig and Jay Kenneth Johnson date? They didn't exactly blow the world over with their chemistry.
The more soap-savvy might be able to think of other examples of couples married in real life that didn't exactly scream Power Couple on screen. In fact, the only ones I can think of are Bill and Susan Hayes. They are in a category by themselves, though. VERY difficult to duplicate that chemistry!
Maybe it'll work, though. We'll see if Casey has the chops for it. Technically, if Melanie is only supposed to be 19, then she's only a year or two older than Chad, and that's not unheard-of.
