At one time, Craig and Nancy Wesley were one of "Days of Our Lives'" most popular pairs. They were also not your typical soap opera couple because Nancy was not your typical soap opera vixen. As played by Patrika Darbo on and off since 1998, Nancy has always been a plus-sized woman with a handsome doctor for a husband — played by Kevin Spirtas since 1997.
Married and faithful to each other for decades, Craig was always the devious doc and Nancy often acted as his partner in crime as the pair put on the charm to pull off a con to get ahead in life, per Soaps In Depth. They also had two daughters together, Chloe and Joy, and it seemed like nothing could break them apart. While they had been living off-screen in New York since 2005 with a few guest appearances here and there, they are now back on the Salem scene with a big storyline — and a shocking one nobody ever saw coming.
In January 2022, Chloe Lane was shocked to see her mother return to Salem. Nancy Wesley was angry and announced that her marriage was over after all these years because Craig was having an affair (via Youtube). Chloe could barely believe it and defended her father, which she continued to do when Craig later showed up in town insisting that he was not seeing another woman.
However, Chloe later overheard her father having a conversation on the phone that definitely made it sound like Nancy was right — Craig was indeed having an affair. He was then forced to admit it was true, revealing that he was having an affair with a man, not a woman. Per Soaps In Depth, Chloe was stunned by Craig's admission and made him tell Nancy, who was also left shocked, and wondering if her entire marriage was a lie. Craig confessed that he had just discovered who he truly was when he met this man and when Nancy asked him if he was bisexual or gay, he said he was indeed gay.
