I honestly can't remember what Melissa's marital situation is. I know she was (is?) married to some local politico (played by Ric Hearst, who played Ric Lansing on General Hospital). There was some kind of scandal that may or may not have caused them to break up (he might even be in jail--I wasn't paying close attention). If they're still married, it might be a situation where Melissa will continue with her husband, tell him it's his baby, and just keep the paternity of the baby secret for as long as she can. If the husband is totally out of the picture, then I guess all bets are off. I would hope an otherwise intelligent, modern woman like Melissa would not go off into "Oh, he says he's gay, but I can fix that!" territory, because that would just be demented (not to mention insulting to everyone involved) at this point.
