Top 30 Coronation Street Couples

9. Steve and Karen McDonald

Unlike other married couples, Steve and Karen ended up at the altar due to a bet. It was due to Janice Battersby stating that Karen could never keep hold of a man. Factory machinist Karen persuaded cabbie Steve to propose to her in the Rovers, which he did and both were surprised when they actually married in 2001, and found they were indeed in love. Underworld’s manager Joe Carter found Karen attractive in 2002, and although she resisted his advances, she soon fell for him, after discovering Steve had had a one night stand. Joe persuaded Karen to help him steal the factory off Mike Baldwin. Guilty Karen confessed to Mike in 2003, who sacked her and Joe left Weatherfield, and by then Karen had realised he had used her. Karen soon found herself with Steve again and asked for a divorce so she could have a dream wedding. They managed to convince the neighbours by publicly rowing and in 2004 they remarried. The wedding was dampened with Tracy Barlow’s revelation that Steve was the father of her daughter Amy. The second marriage was burdened with Karen’s feud with Tracy and Karen suffering a miscarriage. By Christmas 2004, the marriage had collapsed and Karen left Steve and Weatherfield and they divorced in 2006.
