Their first marriage in Sin City was a sham. She drugged him, bought a fake Justice of the Peace, and then fell hopelessly in love with Count DiMera. Could she have loved him solely for his money? Many might argue that to be the case, but it is not likely. Despite the fact that Anna is incurably spoiled and is infatuated with gobs of money, her love emotions tend to run deep. In the beginning, Antony’s affections were not reciprocated. He did feel something for her, but it was more lust than love. In the early days, their marriage was tested. They had to live in the DiMera mansion with another couple, Renee and David Banning. Stefano’s will stipulated that the two couples live together for a period of one year in order to receive a million dollar inheritance. Whichever couple produced an heir before the other, would receive an additional five million dollars. Tony really loved Renee and professed this to her on a number of occasions. Anna and Tony were going to have a child, until Renee, in a fit of jealously and rage, blew up their yacht. Anna miscarried the baby and an infuriated Tony found out that Anna had drugged him in Las Vegas and quickly divorced her.
She’s a spunky gal and not one to back down when chasing her dreams. She continued to pursue Tony despite all the drama going on around her. They endured a fire and ice relationship mixed with setbacks and steamy nights.
Their second marriage, which never seemed like it would happen as Alex Marshall intervened every spare chance he had, was more the fairytale that little girls dream of. She’s a fashion designed jetting off here and there, while he is heir to an empire; truly a match made in heaven.
Until the day that Tony was once again kidnapped. Anna did not know this at the time. She thought he simply pulled a disappearing act. She received the devastating news in the mail: divorce papers. Anna’s heart had been destroyed. She eventually left Salem and moved to Europe. We have recently been reminded that Tony has been living on a remote island. Was Tony the one to have sent those divorce papers to her? Are they really divorced? There love story will surely unfold in the days to come.
In the end, through all the kidnappings, accusations and death threats, Anna and Tony’s love for each other will help them to find their way back into one another’s arms. They are the ultimate supercouple.
