The supercouple is now on its way to becoming a DiscreditedTrope as audiences eventually tired of seeing their favourite supercouples getting married for the ''fourth'' time and were GenreSavvy enough to know that as long as both characters of a pairing remained on the show, then any break up would not be permanent. The rise of internet messageboards in the 1990s provided an outlet for fans of alternative pairings. These pairings [[FanPreferredCouple often become more popular than]] the show's OfficialCouple, resulting in a lot of ShipToShipCombat. Soap writers today usually prefer to use this to their advantage and even those pairings that were once thought untouchable (even the aforementioned Luke and Laura) are not immune from this. One area where the trope is still going strong, however, is with same-sex couples, as they tend to automatically get showered with attention simply due to their ground-breaking nature.
