Relationship with Ethan: She has been in love with Ethan since they were
children. (They were childhood sweethearts). Their families wanted them to
be together because it would be good for their businesses if they got
married. They wanted to marry each other for love.
Meeting Theresa: When Theresa entered their lives, Gwen knew it would be
trouble. She believed that Theresa was in love with Ethan. Theresa denied it
but Gwen didn't believe her at first. Then Theresa claimed she had a
boyfriend named Chuck. At first, Gwen didn't believe that Theresa was
telling the truth about him. Theresa said that he was rich but Gwen didn't
believe her because she had never met him before: since she is rich too, she
would have seen him around the country club. When Gwen saw Chuck, she
finally believed her.
Engagement: Ethan asked Gwen to marry him. She said no. She was not
secure in their relationship. She also didn't believe that he wanted to
marry her for love. He tried to convince her that he did and she finally
accepted his proposal.

steal Ethan away from her, she befriended her. She even asked her to plan
her wedding. Theresa didn't want to do it at first but she eventually
Gwen asked Theresa to be her maid of honor: her other maid of honor got
sick and she asked Theresa to fill in for her.
Trouble in paradise: A sign that her relationship with Ethan was in
trouble showed during her bridal shower: one of the gifts that she received
broke. It was tradition that the present wasn't supposed to break but it
did. Another sign was when she got the shortest ribbon. This, also, wasn't
supposed to happen. The longer ribbon was for a long healthy marriage and
the shorter one meant that your marriage would be troubled.
How she lost Ethan: She left Ethan alone with Theresa a lot. She had to
keep going away on business and that allowed Theresa to get closer to
Ethan. On one occasion that she had to go away, she asked Theresa to go to
Bermuda with Ethan. Gwen and Ethan were supposed to go to Bermuda to see if
that was the place for their honeymoon. Ethan didn't want to go with Theresa
but Gwen insisted. He and Theresa got closer whilst there.
Gwen asked Ethan to take Theresa to her senior prom. Once again, he
didn't want to do this, but Gwen insisted. It was at the prom that Theresa
admitted her feelings for Ethan.
Ethan finally realized that he loved Theresa as well as Gwen. Gwen made
him decide who he wanted to be with. He eventually chose Theresa and Gwen
Batty: When Ethan chose Theresa, Gwen went crazy. She wanted to kill
Theresa because she blamed her for why she lost Ethan. She took a baseball
bat over to Theresa's house and she destroyed the house. When she went to
Theresa's room, she locked Pilar in the closet and went after Theresa. Ethan
stopped her from killing Theresa. Gwen saw the pictures that Theresa had of
Ethan and told him that Theresa had loved him for longer than she said she
Getting revenge: Gwen wanted to get revenge on Theresa. Her mother,
Rebecca, came up with a plan. Theresa knew about Ethan's true paternity and
Rebecca was going to expose it. Rebecca told her that when the truth came
out, Theresa would dump Ethan because she was a gold digger. Gwen was
against this at first but her mother convinced her that she would get Ethan
back. Rebecca emailed Ethan's true paternity to a tabloid newspaper. She
emailed the information from Theresa's computer. When the truth came out,
Gwen realized that this only proved that Theresa loved Ethan for himself and
not for his money. Rebecca came up with another plan. It was time to expose
Theresa as the one who revealed Ethan's paternity to the tabloid. Gwen
didn't want to wait long to expose her. She was sick of seeing Theresa and
Ethan together. She finally decided to call the reporter and tell him to
print the story. On the day of Ethan and Theresa's wedding, the truth came
out. Ivy stopped the wedding and told everyone that Theresa was the one who
had exposed Ethan's paternity.
Reunited: After Ethan broke up with Theresa, Gwen got to spend more time
with him. They eventually got back together. Gwen was still feeling insecure
about Ethan's feelings for Theresa. He proved to her that he loved her. Gwen
thought that they were going to be married, but Ethan never proposed to
Pregnancy: Gwen found out that she was pregnant. She wasn't going to
tell Ethan because he didn't want to be with her. Gwen did finally tell
Ethan about her baby. When he proposed to her, she turned him down. She
didn't want him to marry her out of obligation. Rebecca persuaded her to
accept his proposal and she did.
Married: On the day that Gwen and Ethan were going to be married, Gwen
was convinced that Theresa was up to her old tricks. When she got Ethan's
employment papers, she knew that Theresa wanted her to see them. She was so
upset that Ethan didn't tell her about the job, that she slapped him in the
church. She refused to marry him, but Rebecca talked her into it. Theresa's
plan had failed. Gwen and Ethan got married.
Insecurities: Gwen is not convinced that Ethan is over Theresa. She
doesn't like how he keeps running to help her. She's even contemplated
leaving Ethan if he kept trying to fix Theresa's problems. She wants him to
think of her and the baby before Theresa and her baby.
Difficult pregnancy: Because Gwen had been worried about Sheridan’s
disappearance, she had to go to the hospital. The stress was too much for
her and the baby. She was also worried that Theresa was going to go after
Ethan again, thanks to Rebecca. Rebecca told her that Theresa was going to
steal Ethan away from her if she lost her baby. This wasn't good for her
because Eve said that she couldn't be stressed.
While Gwen was in the hospital, she had an argument with Theresa. Gwen
accused Theresa of trying to steal Ethan away from her. She denied it at
first but then told her that she did want him back. This only angered Gwen
more and caused her more stress.
Rebecca gave Gwen an idea to remain stress free. She told her to go to
California where there was a specialist who could help her keep her baby. It
was also a way to get Ethan away from Theresa.
Los Angeles: While Gwen and Ethan were on their way to California, Gwen
kept having a strong feeling that Theresa was on the plane with them. Little
did she know, her feeling was right. She was on the plane. Gwen kept having
fantasies that Theresa was going to steal Ethan away from her.
She finally relaxed once they arrived in L.A., even though she mentioned
Theresa endlessly. Once they arrived at the Crane apartment, she doubled
over in pain again. Once again she was rushed to the hospital. The
specialist, Dr. Abel, advised her to stay at the hospital so he could
Gwen was ready to leave the hospital so she could spend time with Ethan
at the apartment. She was unaware that Theresa was living there.
