Hermione Granger is smart, capable, and caring. She keeps her cool in dangerous situations, and is always there to help you finish that last scroll for History of Magic. Hermione quickly became many readers' favorite character from the Harry Potter books (spawning plenty of memes and fan theories in the process)– and who does she end up with? Ronald Bilius Weasley.
Really, J. K. Rowling? You're going to have this frizzy-haired angel end up with the series' comic relief? At least have her settle for the franchise's title character. Plenty of fans think Rowling did Hermione dirty by having her end up with Ron, and that opinion goes way beyond just shipping Harry and Hermione. More insane fan theories ship Harry and Draco Malfoy than Ron and Hermione, for goodness' sake. And who's even checking for Harry's canon significant other, Ginny Weasley?
It's clear that Hermione and Ron were a huge mistake. Even Rowling revealed she thinks she messed up her romantic pairings. From their compatible personalities to their undeniable chemistry, check out all the reasons why Harry Potter and Hermione Granger should have ended up together.
