All Of Nicole Walker's Marriages On Days Of Our Lives

"Days of Our Lives" viewers have become accustomed to seeing characters with big personalities and dramatic lives. Over the years, fans have gotten to know plenty of these characters, such as Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso), Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall), John Black (Drake Hogestyn), Brady Black (Eric Martsolf), Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), and more, per Gold Derby. Of course, one of the most dramatic characters to ever hit Salem has to be Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker).

After arriving in 1998, she worked as a waitress and later befriended fan-favorite character Eric Brady, who was then played by actor Jensen Ackles. Nicole soon became one of the soap opera's most popular characters with her shocking backstory of abuse and family issues, as well as her knack for stirring up trouble at every turn. However, she's also one of the characters who has created the most drama and chaos in the fictional Midwestern town (via Soaps in Depth).

Everything from Nicole's epic feud with Sami Brady to her heartbreaking bad luck with her pregnancies has kept fans intrigued for decades, per Soap Central. Of course, Nicole's love life is one of the most interesting things about the character, and, over the years, she's been married to many men.

Remembering Nicole's first three marriages

Throughout the decades, Nicole Walker has created a very juicy romantic history. The character has had flings with men like Colin Murphy, Brady Black, and Austin Reed. She was even engaged to Dr. Daniel Jonas. Meanwhile, she's also walked down the aisle multiple times during her time on "Days of Our Lives" (via Soaps).

When Nicole first came to Salem, she had a mysterious past and came from an abusive home life with her parents. She fell in love with Eric Brady, however, she was still married to her first husband, Trent Robbins, whom she married while she was in college and was the biological father of Max Brady. Nicole later revealed that Trent was abusive toward her during their relationship, causing her to run away and go into hiding without filing for divorce, per Soap Central.

During her early years in Salem, Nicole agreed to marry Lucas Horton in exchange for $5 million. She needed the money, and Lucas was trying to steal Nicole away from Eric at the time (via Soaps in Depth). However, Victor Kiriakis found a way to take the fortune from Nicole, leaving her broke. She devised another plan and set her sights on Victor. The two married, but Nicole later learned that the marriage, as well as the one to Lucas, was deemed invalid due because she was still legally wed to Trent.

Nicole married EJ, Eric, and Rafe

After Nicole Walker's first three marriages failed, she eventually met and fell in love with EJ DiMera. "Days of Our Lives" viewers watched as Nicole and EJ attempted to live happily ever after and were thrilled when they found out that Nicole was pregnant. Sadly, Nicole miscarried the baby but continued to fake her pregnancy until she eventually adopted a baby and switched it with Sami Brady's daughter at birth, per Soap Central. Nicole and EJ eventually divorced when the truth came out, but they later reunited and tied the knot again (via Fame 10).

Following her split from EJ, Nicole left town, and it was discovered that she had married Xander Kiriakis after he blackmailed her into the marriage, per Soaps in Depth. Eric helped Nicole get out of the marriage, and the two reunited. Eventually, they got married after decades of struggles. However, their marriage didn't last long. After Eric left Salem to work in Africa, Nicole got lonely and ended up having a one-night stand with Xander. Eric filed for divorce upon finding out.

Nicole moved on to Rafe Hernandez, and the pair got married at city hall. However, she couldn't fight her feelings for Eric, and Rafe wanted out of the marriage after Nicole confessed her undying love for her ex-husband. 

Nicole's love life has been messy, but fans can't seem to get enough of it, as it's unclear where her romantic storyline will go next.
