'Y&R' 12,000th Episode Sneak Peek: Wedding Second Thoughts (VIDEO)

For the 12,000th episode of CBS's long running The Young and the Restless on Tuesday, December 2, a wedding has been planned between Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) and Chance Chancellor (temporarily played by Justin Chaston, Ordway's real-life husband). It's a soap opera's prerogative, though, to throw in some surprises. And, if you saw the episode on December 1, you saw that the couple had yet to make it to the altar — they had taken a beat to make sure the wedding was the right next step for them.
