Fans of Jason Morgan and Samantha McCall (JaSam) have been waiting years to see their couple finally overcome all of the obstacles they have faced and truly be happy. That happiness was found on September 22/23, 2011.
From the unconventional engagement that had the groom presenting his bride to be with a lug nut for an engagement ring, to the maid of honor losing the same engagement ring at least five times and all the other mishaps that happened, fans wondered if the actual wedding would not only take place, but if the wedding would represent who Jason and Sam really are.
Sam became completely overwhelmed, mostly because she is usually waiting for the other shoe to drop when she's happy. Sam has only known true happiness with Jason, but she's seen her world come crashing down on more than one occasion and often as a direct result of her own actions. Sam and Jason know that each other is not perfect and they have forgiven each other and themselves for their past mistakes. Knowing that they fully forgive, trust and love each other has led the couple to finally make a full commitment to each other.
Even when Jason and Sam were apart and supposedly hated each other, they had so much passion in their fighting those rooting for the couple to reunite couldn't deny the chemistry.
When Sam became completely overwhelmed with the wedding preparations, Jason took his bride for a ride on his Harley and the two wound up at a Chinese food restaurant. They got more than dinner, the two tied the knot right then and there, by themselves in a truly romantic ceremony that was well, classic JaSam. The bride and groom both looked at each other with love in their eyes that most people only dream of. I have to admit, it was THE most emotion I have ever seen from Jason Morgan, aka the robot, borg, Jasatron etc... The way he looked at Sam made me wish I could find a man that loved me as unconditionally as Jason loves Sam.
If you're not a fan I'm not expecting you to see the romance behind the wedding and if you're not a fan I would never tell you that you're wrong or you obviously can't see chemistry. Viewers see what they want to see and like what they want to like. But for all the JaSam fans out there - raise a glass and chopsticks in honor of your couple.
The only question that remains now - will JaSam have the opportunity to live happily ever after? Because let's face it - in the world of soaps no couple is guaranteed absolute happiness - just ask the Sonny and Brenda fans, or the Liz and Lucky fans, or the Liz and Jason fans or the Robin and Stone fans or Robert and Holly - the list goes on and on. But for right now, Jason, Sam and their fans are going to bask in the glory of the wedding that wasn't and the marriage that is.
