Exactly. The cool thing is that, the way Marlena is positioned and the chemistry she has with John, in your banner, would give a non-fan the impression that they're a couple. You couldn't say the same about Brady and Madison or too many other couples on the show. They could be brother and sister or just friends. But Dee is positioned in such a way that you can tell Drake's character is her rock and he is positioned in such a way that you can tell they're a packaged deal. It's just natural chemistry. They look good together, they feel good together, and it's not just because of SEX. (Talking to you, Bradison!) The sad thing about the NYT article is that it gives the impression that, since women are "edgier" these days, we can't have a true love story that isn't based purely on sex. That Brady proposed to Madison after very little evidence of this supposed "great love" tells me that TPTB don't get the difference between casual bedhopping that may prevalent in many parts of today's real life society, and what that segment of society is lacking: true love.
