# for trying to kill Victor, among other things


A couple of things are clear from this list.

First, Victor isn’t the type to be alone for long, as every marriage follows closely on the heels of another (failed) marriage. Sometimes, they even overlap!

And, secondly, even though he tends to have a hard time staying in one place for long, matrimonially, Victor is a creature of habit … especially where matters of the heart are concerned.

This tendency manifests itself in his marriages, where five times he has married women with whom he previously exchanged nuptials.

Together, three women account for eight of Victor’s 15 marriages.

Of course, the one woman whom Victor just can’t seem to shake is Nikki Reed, who first tied the not with Victor in 1984 … and then again in 1998 … and in 2002 … and finally (maybe), in 2013.

That marriage came as Victor entered his middle 60s, and it now seems like maybe the Y & R power couple is in it for the long haul. Finally. And amazingly.

Besides Nikki, Victor has been married to two other women twice each — Ashley Abbott in 1990 and 2009, and Diane Jenkins in 1997 and 2011.

Leave it to Victor to stick it to his rivals at every turn …

You see, Ashley is Jack Abbott’s sister, and Jack is Victor’s longtime foe in both the Genoa City cosmetics arena (via Jabot Cosmetics) and in the love department — Jack was also married to Nikki in between her hitchings with Victor.

And Diane was Jack’s longtime assistant and love interest.

So, if you can’t beat them, beat them anyway, right Victor.

And then steal their women … and dump them … and steal their other woman and dump her … and steal their sister and dump her.

And then do it all again. And again. And again.

After all these years, then, and after all that turmoil, have Victor and Nikki finally found the lasting love that will take them to their graves?

Or will one or the other of them get some sort of itch, and blow the whole thing up yet again?

Recent history is on their side, but a 30,000-foot view says you can never be sure with these two.

So, just when you think you’ve seen all the Victor Newman marriages there are to see … well, you just might get a surprise.
