Two Scoops is a weekly commentary column written by our staff of writers. Sometimes you might agree, and other times you might disagree. Either way, we love hearing your opinions, too, so be sure to send us your thoughts.

When it comes to what's happening on The Young and the Restless, everyone has an opinion -- and our Two Scoops columnists are no different. Every week, our commentators share their thoughts on everything that's taking place in Genoa City... the good, the bad, and everything in between.

If you're looking to be a little nostalgic, we've archived our Two Scoops columns from 2004 through the current week. Now, you can easily flip back through the pages of history to see how storylines were received when they first played out. Has time softened a rocky reception?

After a mere few weeks, another couple successfully exchanged vows to begin their new lives together in wedded bliss.
