Hope and Rafe’s mar­riage may be over be­fore it’s even be­gun now that Hope has dis­cov­ered Rafe cheated on her with Sami, on Days of Our Lives.

Through­out her ro­mance with Rafe, Hope has ex­pe­ri­enced a swathe of con­flict­ing emo­tions as she’s had sec­ond thoughts about mov­ing on with an­other man after los­ing Bo, the love of her life, a few years ago. At times, she’s won­dered whether she can trust Rafe’s com­mit­ment to her. Fi­nally, how­ever, she re­solved to put her fears aside and forge a fu­ture with him, un­aware that he’s hid­ing a huge secret from her.

That secret in­volves Rafe (Galen Ger­ing) sleep­ing with his ex-wife Sami (Ali­son Sweeney) a few months ago, when he and Hope (Kris­tian Al­fonso) had briefly bro­ken up. Im­me­di­ately re­gret­ting his in­fi­delity, Rafe re­solved never to tell Hope and se­cured Sami’s si­lence, fi­nally rec­on­cil­ing with Hope and be­com­ing en­gaged to her. He mo­men­tar­ily pan­icked when Ciara (Victoria Kone­fal) stum­bled on his be­trayal but thought he dodged a bul­let when Ciara opted not to hurt her mother by re­veal­ing it.

That all changed re­cently when a trou­bled Ciara broke her si­lence, con­fid­ing Rafe’s in­fi­delity to Tripp (Lu­cas Adams), both un­aware that Claire’s (Olivia Rose Kee­gan) phone had recorded the con­ver­sa­tion. Fate­fully, Claire heard the record­ing and was hor­ri­fied to learn that Rafe had cheated on her grand­mother. With Rafe and Hope’s wed­ding near­ing, Claire wres­tled with whether to tell Hope the truth but be­fore she could, Hope and Rafe skipped town on a ro­man­tic va­ca­tion.

At the Hor­ton cabin on Smith Is­land, Hope un­veiled a week­end of pure ro­mance for her fi­ancé, sur­pris­ing him by sum­mon­ing a Jus­tice of the Peace to marry them im­me­di­ately in the in­ti­mate and peace­ful set­ting.

Rafe agreed and he and Hope ex­changed vows and were pro­nounced hus­band and wife be­fore mak­ing love on their wed­ding night. They re­turned to

Salem the next morn­ing, in­tent on hid­ing their secret mar­riage and go­ing through with their planned wed­ding to please their fam­i­lies.

Un­for­tu­nately, as the guests gath­ered and the cer­e­mony was about to be­gin, a guilty Claire got into an ar­gu­ment with Ciara about the secret they both knew, with Ciara beg­ging her niece not to ruin Hope’s spe­cial day. How­ever, Claire couldn’t keep quiet any longer and in­ter­rupted the cer­e­mony to tell Hope “Rafe cheated on you”. Rafe looked ashen as Hope stared at him, des­per­ately want­ing an­swers.

Much to every­one’s hor­ror, the truth about Rafe sleep­ing with Sami was fi­nally di­vulged, leav­ing Hope an an­gry and bro­ken new­ly­wed bride. Ul­ti­mately, she broke down, telling Rafe he’d bro­ken her trust and her heart and that their new mar­riage was over.

With the Her­nan­dez mar­riage in tat­ters, it’s ob­vi­ous that Rafe won’t let his wife slip away from him eas­ily and will fight to win her back. But Hope may not be as will­ing to for­give as he wants, leav­ing the fu­ture of the re­la­tion­ship uncer­tain.

Hope and Rafe’s mar­riage may be over be­fore it’s be­gun.

Hope (Kris­tian Al­fonso) learns of Rafe’s (Galen Ger­ing) huge secret.
