How Many Wives Has Victor Newman Had on ‘Young and the Restless’?

Young and the Restless classic episodes showed us old school Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) romancing women in his life. Recently, there was a throwback wedding for Victor and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott). But, Nikki’s not the only bride The Mustache married. Just how many wives did Victor have over the years on Y&R? We’ve got the answer for you.

When Will Young and the Restless Episodes Return With Victor Newman?

Y&R‘s on hiatus from shooting, and there’s more bad news out of Hollywood. Everyone wants to know when there will be new episodes of Young and the Restless. Now, LA county colleges canceled the Fall semester. And the governor extended the lockdown for three months.

As of now, that means that Y&R might not resume shooting until August or September. That would put new episodes of Young and the Restless on-air in Fall or Winter. That’s not good, mainly since we had several cliffhangers. One of them was Victor Newman and his son.

Usually, though, Victor’s more focused on lady problems. Now, The Mustache seems happy with Nikki, but her blabbing the Kansas murder truth set him off on Young and the Restless. So, there’s a chance this could wreck their currently happy union. But how many other wives did Victor have?

The Many Wives of Victor on Y&R – Weddings, Annulments, Death, and Divorce

Young and the Restless saw Victor Newman married and divorced  – and had many loves he lost over the decades on the CBS sudser. In the early 80s, Victor showed up to Genoa City, married to Julia Newman (Meg Bennett). They divorced, then he married his most frequent wife, Nikki.

Victor married Nikki on Young and the Restless once each decade. They had weddings in 1984, 1998, 2002, and 2013. Then, they had a vow renewal in 2017 despite divorces papers filed prior. Although Victor and wife Nikki are solid now, she’s far from his only wife.

His other legal wives included Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) in the early 90s on Young and the Restless. Victor also married Hope Wilson (Signy Coleman), Adam Newman’s (Mark Grossman) mom, who’s now passed away. Other wives include Sabrina Costelana (Raya Meddine) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case). He wed Sharon twice, in fact. But then, there are unions where he married, but it was not legit.

Victor Newman’s Invalidated Unions on Y&R

Back in 1998 on Young and the Restless, Victor Newman wed Nikki on what was supposedly her deathbed. The problem was, he was still hitched to Diane Jenkins (last played by Maura West). So, that was one invalid union. But, there were many more in Victor’s timeline.

His marriage to author Leanna Love (Barbara Crampton) wasn’t legal because Nikki was still legally his wife. Then, there’s Meggie McClain (Sean Young), who planned to black widow Victor. But, he fake-married her, then turned the tables. Plus, there are some annulments in the mix on Young and the Restless.

Back in 2011, Victor Newman annulled his marriage to Diane. Then, twice in 2012, he married and annulled Sharon. So, as to how many weddings Victor’s had, it’s at least 14. As to how many different brides, he’s had on Young and the Restless, that number is nine.

In order, there’s Julia, Nikki, Leanna, Ashley, Hope, Diane, Sabrina, Meggie, and Sharon. Three of his wives are dead – Sabrina, Hope, and Diane. Now, it seems he and Nikki are settled in, but you never know with ladies man Victor Newman. Watch to see him in action on Y&R classic episodes.
