Things were already tense between Abby and Chance on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, and that’s before she slept with Devon! And while he’s decided that they should just call it quits and get a divorce, does she feel the same?
“She refuses to give up on their marriage,” Melissa Ordway (Abby) told Soap Opera Digest in a recent issue. “She‘ll try anything to make it up to him even though she knows that there’s nothing she can do to make it right. This was the worst kind of betrayal and it’ll be really, really difficult to come back from that.”
Chance had already felt like an outsider in his family when the only way that he and Abby could have a baby was for Devon to father it and Mariah to carry it to term. So for Abby to have slept with Dominic’s biological father was absolutely heartbreaking for the guy. And although Abby has insisted that her moment of passion with Devon was just a terrible mistake, there are clearly still some lingering feelings between the pair.
However, for Chance, the infidelity was just the straw that broke the camel’s back as he’s been feeling like he and Abby have been drifting apart ever since he returned to Genoa City. His struggles to connect with Dominic and throwing himself back into work to avoid facing the troubles at home have built to this moment where he’s ready to just give up on them ever having a future together.
“He’s basically saying that their marriage is just too flawed to work,” Ordway admitted, adding, “Abby isn’t throwing in the towel. She’s ready to fight for her family.”
But now that he’s bringing up divorce, is there any way she can change his mind? Or will she finally agree that ending their marriage is the right decision to make?
