Days of Our Lives to become the first daytime soap to feature marrying men

U.S. drama Days Of Our Lives will make TV history this week (beg31Mar14) by becoming the first daytime soap to feature a wedding between two gay men. The character of Will Horton, played by Guy Wilson, will marry on screen partner Sonny Kiriakis, portrayed by Freddie Smith, in a storyline which will take place over the course of three consecutive episodes later this week.
It is not the first same-sex wedding to be part of a U.S. soap – lesbians Bianca Montgomery and Reese Williams, played by Eden Riegel and Tamara Braun respectively, exchanged vows on All My Children in 2009.
