This 'Harry Potter' Fan Theory About Hermione And Ron Will Break Your Heart
Taking to Twitter, she explained that they really had nothing in common and would instead remind each other of "everyone and everything they lost" following the fatal war in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
Dark. We know.
She wrote: "I spend a lot of time thinking about whether Ron and Hermione got a divorce and I'm 70% sure that they did.
"They have nothing in common besides the war. Their relationship is a daily reminder of everyone and everything they lost."

Anyhow, I think "we're both traumatized" is a terrible reason to get married at 18. I can see how it happens, but think Hermione would be smart enough to rethink this later.- Jennifer Wright (@JenAshleyWright) December 15, 2019
Jennifer added that their marriage was borne out of fear and loss rather than true love.
Adding: "In a kinder world, Ron and Hermione would send each other Christmas cards and hang out once or twice a year when they were in the same town. Mostly, they'd talk sh*t about Snape.
"Anyhow, I think 'we're both traumatized' is a terrible reason to get married at 18. I can see how it happens but think Hermione would be smart enough to rethink this later."
And Jennifer isn't alone in her thought-process as author JK Rowling previously said Ron may not have been the most suitable partner for Hermione, after fans initially called for the heroine to be paired up with Harry instead.
In a 2014 interview with Wonderland, the writer admitted she may have got it wrong by matching Hermione with flame-haired Ron.
She told the magazine: "I wrote the Hermione-Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment. That's how it was conceived, really.
"For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.
"I know, I'm sorry, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I'm absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people's hearts by saying this? I hope not."
Rowling said the couple would have likely needed relationship counselling, while actress Emma Watson, who played Hermione in the film franchise, also doubted the couple's potential longevity.
She told the Sunday Times: "I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy."
