    Okay so as I'm rewatching the show this question popped into my head. We all know that Abby is a fascinating character and that she sometimes have certain motifs for doing things. Like for instance did she marry Gary for his money or did she truly love him?

    Over all she was married three times and I think engaged once. But which one of her husbands did she love the most?

    Or was Abby's true love her children Olivia & Brian or someone else?

    The poll is multiple choice but feel free to debate your choice/s. :)

    The story told us it was Charles.

    Many fans hate him because he looks like a De Vilbis, so they will simply deny it.

    But many fans also hate Diana, and Abby gave her her kidney. I'm just saying.

    Too bad "Benjamin Franklin" wasn't an option in your poll. ;)

    When I first read the thread title, I thought "herself".
    That's true but it's in the past. The story also told us it made her the way she is now, which is self-protective.

    Charles and Gary (as Abby really loved them, especially Charles when Abby was a young woman), then Jeff before he tried to take the kids off her. Her relationship with Greg was about lust and politics only. Abby loves business more than any man, which she made clear to Greg, who has become an arch pragmatist to the point of cynicism. Abby married Gary for his inheritance mostly, but not solely. Abby also saw potential in Gary, and felt that she was the best person to get it out of him as she felt Val was holding Gary back. Regarding Abby's parenting, she's a much better mother to Brian than she is to Olivia. Abby is controlling towards Olivia, and seemingly dreads Olivia showing weaknesses or a lack of discipline. Olivia herself often seems closer to Val and Karen than she is to her own mother, which only irritates Abby more. In Abby's mind, Val is nice but boring and unambitious; and Karen is an irritating self-righteous preacher of morals and thus the antithesis of a successful business outlook. When Olivia starts going off the rails or doing things that her mother disapproves of, Abby is harsh and sometimes brutally harsh.

    I've reached season nine in my rewatch right now so I voted Charles and also her kids. Abby does love her kids and out of the men she dated or married it seems like she really loved Charles. I've never seen her getting this upset over a man before.

    I do think she loved Gary too and I think a part of her must have loved Jeff to marry him and have his kids. But Charles was the one who broke her heart when she was young and it seems like she loved him the most of the men she was involved with.

    I dunno
    Abby, duh.

    With that said, I thought she was best partnered with Greg as it seems like their life philosophy align the most out of those choices.

    If Abby truly loved Gary would she have pushed to marry him before he inherited Jock's money so she could have a claim on it if they divorced? Would she have embezzled his cash and had an affair with Greg when the ink on her marriage certificate was barely dry. I sometimes wonder whether she really loved Gary or if she just loved him for the sex and his money.
