JK Rowling has backtracked on what she called "Potter heresy" by saying that Ron and Hermione will be alright with a bit of counselling.
The 48-year-old writer said that the couple will probably be fine with a bit of marriage counselling, where he needs to work on his self-esteem issues and she needs to work on being a little less critical, the Guardian reported. She had earlier said that Hermione should have ended with Harry Potter and not Ron.
Rowling claimed that Hermione, just like her creator, has a weakness for a funny man, as it is such a relief from being so intense herself and therefore she needs someone who takes or appears to take life more light-heartedly.
Rowling had previously told Emma Watson in an interview that she paired Hermione-Ron as a form of wish fulfilment and for reasons very little to do with literature and far more to do with her clinging to the plot, which in turn had traumatised Harry Potter fans. (ANI)
