OMG - YES! Totally agree. I love Ron. He had a good heart, but he was whiny and petulant, and couldn’t have cared less for the things that meant so much to Hermione - namely intellectual pursuits. She deserved better. And don’t get me started on Ginny (and yes, I am talking about the books). She was shallow and boring. The section where she got all snotty with Hermione over quidditch made me dislike her intensely. Harry deserved the best, and that is Hermione. While Ginny was pursuing popularity, and Ron was off pouting about one thing or another, Harry and Hermione stayed together. She was the one who never abandoned him. In the entire series, not putting them together was the ONE thing I couldn’t stand.
