Austin accepted her into his life Billie didn't until much later. Sami had an obsession with Austin, and tried different underhanded things to get Austin to notice her. She drugged and raped him he thought she was Carrie, Sami's sister and Austin's girlfriend. Sami drowned her sorrows in beer and then in his brother Lucas' bed, became pregnant and left town, while she convinced herself that the baby was Austin's child.
Austin and Carrie became engaged and while saying their vows in church, Sami came back to town and told everyone that she was pregnant with Austin's baby. While Lucas wondered if the child could be his, Sami reassured him that she knew it was Austin's child.
Austin didn't marry Carrie, but devoted himself to Sami and his child. They got the child back safely, but afterwards, Sami and Austin continued to have issues. He wanted an annulment once he found out that Lucas was the father of Will, not him. After an argument, Austin accidentally ran over Sami twice with his car. This caused Sami to have amnesia, and since he couldn't annul their marriage until she remembered who she was, he stuck by her until he found out that a few weeks into having amnesia, she started to have memories, and was faking her amnesia.
Eventually their marriage was annulled and Austin was free to marry Carrie. As Austin took care of Sami, he decided it would be best for her and Will if they would remarry. Over the course of time, Sami regained her memory as well as learned--due to seeing medical records--that Wil wasn't Austin's son, and a told only Lucas.
The wedding was set to take place in September However, the wedding ceremony was interrupted by Carrie, who exposed the truths that Lucas was Will's actual father and that Sami had been faking amnesia.
Austin, heartbroken, left Sami at the altar and married Carrie that same day. Sami returned months later, fought for custody of Will, and fell in love and became engaged to Franco Kelly.
In September , Franco was murdered by Lucas Roberts, and wanting revenge on Sami, Kate covered up the murder and made it look like Sami committed the murder. Austin fled town with Sami to help her, but Sami was caught, tried and set to be executed for the murder. At the last moment, the truth came out. Because Austin had spent so much time with Sami in a misguided attempt to help her, Carrie felt their relationship was falling apart.
Mike Horton stepped in to fill the void as he was attracted to Carrie, and eventually Carrie and Austin broke up. Carrie moved to Israel with Mike on November 19, Austin then rekindles his romance with Sami later that same year, and despite a brief fling with Greta and Nicole, Austin and Sami remain on and off before becoming engaged in the spring of However, Sami blackmails Victor into transferring Austin's job to Hawaii to escape Lucas and when Austin finds out, he leaves Sami at the altar and leaves Salem.
In , Austin returned to Salem for his half-brother Lucas and Sami's next attempt at tying the knot. The wedding didn't happen and Austin was there for Sami when no one else was. With no place to stay in Salem, Austin moved in with Sami. The company took over High Style, a company that was run by Carrie.
Austin did not know Carrie was back in the United States and did not know High Style was her company. Lucas found out the company Austin was taking over was indeed Carrie's but did not tell Austin. Lucas knew that once Carrie and Austin saw each other, they would get back together. Lucas had fallen for Carrie and wanted her to himself for several years, and knew Carrie would not get back with Austin if Austin took over her company, so he allowed it to happen.
Carrie was furious with Austin for taking over her company, and Lucas stepped in to comfort her; they began a relationship. Sami and Lucas deviously worked together to help Lucas further his relationship with Carrie. Sami's motive was to make sure Carrie was not available romantically for Austin, as Sami wanted Austin for herself.
Eventually Carrie and Lucas married, and Austin and Sami were a couple and were planning yet another wedding. To ensure that Carrie would no longer want to be with Austin, Sami was also able to blackmail Dr. Lexie Carver after finding out about Lexie's affair with young detective Tek Kramer. Lexie thought up of a bogus story to tell Carrie, which was that Austin and Carrie shared rare genetic markers and if they ever had children, the child would suffer extreme birth defects that could result in death.
Carrie then moved on romantically with Lucas, and even became engaged. She soon believed she was pregnant due to an inaccurate pregnancy test, causing her and Lucas to rush their wedding date. When Carrie found out there was no baby, and had a "hysterical pregnancy", she was distraught and cheated on Lucas with Austin who was still engaged to Sami on the roof of their apartment building.
Carrie was extremely relieved when Austin did not marry Sami. Prior to the ceremony she had expressed to Marlena that she was still in love with Austin, and admitted to loving Lucas but not being in love with him. After secretly meeting with Austin to make love and comfort one another, Lucas and Sami came to the roof and caught them. After a bitter tirade on Sami and Lucas' part, Carrie was kicked out of their apartment. Soon after, Carrie handed Lucas annulment papers and Lucas was more than willing to sign them in order to immediately get Carrie out of his life.
Eventually, they did separate. On the day they were supposed to remarry Austin thought Carrie was in love with Dr. Mike Horton , it was revealed Sami was faking her amnesia and Lucas was Will's father.
Austin and Carrie married that same day. Sami was accused of murder not long after she accused Lucas of child abuse. Austin took Will and Sami on the run, evading the police.
Carrie, felt abandoned, and found solace in the arms of Mike Horton. Sami was freed in the nick of time. Carrie and Austin continued to have problems in their marriage, finally separating and divorcing when Carrie left Salem with Dr. Austin and Sami finally reunited, and were just about to get married when Austin learned the truth about Sami's past history.
He left her at the altar in Las Vegas. Three years after leaving town, Austin returned to Salem, and was instrumental in saving Sami from a life in prison or worse.
There was another reason he came back to Salem, though -- he had never stopped loving Carrie Brady. Austin eventually learned the truth, but it was too late to do anything. Carrie had recently discovered she was pregnant with Lucas' baby, and with Carrie looking forward to a future with Lucas, Austin renewed his connection with Sami.
They nearly wed, even though Austin's heart remained with Carrie, but Austin and Carrie learned that Sami had lied that they shared genetic markers that would make having a child inadvisable. After Carrie learned she was never pregnant with Lucas' baby, she and Austin found their way back to each other and wed before leaving Salem for Switzerland.
A few months later, Austin's nephew, Will, came to live with Carrie and him in Switzerland. While there, Austin got a call from work, telling him that he needed to go over the files of a CEO who was up on embezzlement charges.
Austin was kept on the case during the course of the trial, which caused friction between John's defense attorney -- Carrie. Carrie and Rafe eventually proved that evidence against John had been fabricated and John was released. Carrie and Austin got back to their normal lives and decided to stay in Salem. Austin took a job as a professor at Salem U. Carrie opened a law office with Rafe as her private investigator. Austin hired Abigail Deveraux as his student assistant. Abigail quickly became smitten with Austin and fantasized about a life together.
Austin had no idea of her feelings and continued to treat her as a friend, even confiding in her when he and Carrie had a fight over how much time Carrie was spending with her new job.
In attempt to make time for their marriage, Austin showed up one day to take Carrie out to eat. Instead, he found Sami confronting Rafe and Carrie about a kiss Sami just witnessed. Austin was furious with Carrie and stormed out. He bought a bottle of alcohol and stumbled back to his office drunk. She tried to comfort him. He told her that Carrie had betrayed him. He told her to stop. She reassured him that it was okay and kissed him again. Then, Austin passed out on the couch.
Abigail took her clothes off and layed down next to him.
