If he hadn’t dated Hermione, he would have dated another girl.
Of course he wouldn’t try to kill Harry. He’s Harry’s best friend! In real life, people don’t usually try to kill someone who gets the girl/boy they like.
I really don’t understand why most people think Ron is a loser and then he deserves Hermione as his consolation prize.
Ron doesn’t have a lot of money, he’s not the favorite son, and he’s not popular, but so what? It’s not the end of the world! His life is not so miserable! He has a home, he has loyal friends. He has a family who loves him.
Look at Harry’s life. He lost his parents, he grew up with a family who hates him. He slept in a cupboard under the stairs! Not to mention a bloody wizard trying to kill him. I mean, Ron’s life is like a paradise if we compare to Harry’s life.
But I don’t think Harry deserves Hermione because he had a miserable life. Again, she’s not a prize. He deserves her because she completes him. I truly believe that Hermione is Harry’s soul mate.
Ron is insecure and immature. That’s all. He doesn’t need to marry Hermione to survive.
People definitely should have faith in Ron, and realize that he can live and be happy. He’s not anyone shadow and he doesn’t need pity. xx
