In a recent interview, J.K. Rowling admitted she made a mistake in pairing Hermione with the lovable Ron Weasley.

In the surprising interview, Rowling said the choice she made was for personal reasons,

"I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. 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."

She also said that she understands she is probably breaking people's hearts by admitting the mistake, but hopes that fans of the franchise will understand.

What do you think? Do you think that Hermione would have been happier with Harry or Ron?
