Q: I thought Sonny and Carly originally hated each other. How did they become husband and wife?A: Sonny and Carly did hate one another. In fact, it was hatred that fueled their one-night stand. They first became bed buddies after Carly spotted Jason (with whom she was madly in love) in an intimate moment with Elizabeth; Sonny had just discovered that his latest love, Hannah, was an undercover federal agent. Their tryst resulted in Carly's pregnancy, but she ended up losing the baby. Sonny took Carly and Michael under his wing, however, and ended up marrying Carly so she couldn't testify against him after the cops busted in on a meeting between Sonny and Sorel. Of course, they eventually fell in love.
