The Young Marrieds was a show on ABC and was the first attempt at a sister soap for General Hospital. It ran for only two years, from 1964-1966, having 380 episodes. It was moderately popular, but was up against CBS's top-rated The Edge of Night, which it could not compete against. The series finale aired on March 25, 1966, ending the show in a cliffhanger, with the show's main protagonist contemplating suicide. The Young Marrieds was set in the fictional suburb of Queens Point, which was considered by the writers to be a suburb of Port Charles, New York. On General Hospital, Patrick Drake's and Elizabeth Webber's homes are in this area of the town.
