Divorce number five?

Yes, Sonny and Carly have been married five times now. It sure looked like this last time would be their happy ever after. For many "General Hospital" fans, this last effort at marriage may have looked like it would be as strong as ever.

But this is a soap opera and you certainly can't have any couple be happy for too long. However, this couple has been through so much, especially with the death of their son, Morgan, last year. Now that his killer, Olivia Jerome, has been found and on her way to be locked up for good, you would think that they would get back together.

Carly has struggled for years having to live life with Sonny and his mob lifestyle. She had accepted it, until their son was killed in the car bomb that she thought was her husband's fault. After Sonny was found not to be at fault, they temporarily got back together. But then something else got in the way.

Then there was Nelle

Nelle Hayes has made her mark and she is still around to remind the Corinthos' family of Sonny's supposed infidelity. She still has not told the truth about her setting it up to look like she slept with Carly's husband and now their marriage is suffering for it.

According to "General Hospital" spoilers coming up, Sonny will be giving his wife an ultimatum.

He will leave it up to her to decide whether she is willing to forgive him for the one night with Nelle or to leave their marriage altogether. That would mean yet another divorce for this couple. There are rumors that both Sonny and Carly will be getting new loves in their lives, so it may be that Carly will decide to file for divorce. On Friday's episode, Carly is angry that Sonny has given her a timetable to get over what happened with Nelle.

Will Nelle tell the truth?

Nelle could turn out to be a lifesaver if she ends up telling the truth about the setup. She is still mad at Carly and still wants her to suffer. However, she wants Michael Corinthos to forgive her. That would certainly happen if she were to spill the details of her and his father's not-so-indiscretion.

Will she tell the story before it's too late to save their marriage?

It could be that Nelle will eventually tell the truth, but it may be after both Sonny and Carly have moved on from each other. What do you think? Would you like to see this couple back together or is it time for their relationship to end for good? Stay tuned to "General Hospital" to find out if they survive this recent trial.
