I see Mary Anne getting married at a young age. She's pretty old-fashioned and I can picture her having only serious relationships, and wanting to settle down and start having kids right after college. I believe Alma was quite a bit younger than Richard too, so Alma would have been a young bride too.
I disagree. I don't see Mary Anne as that 'old-fashioned.'
I think Mary Anne, being rather timid and cautious, would wait a few extra years, at least until twenty-five before rushing into marriage.
She had seen kids impacted by divorce and doesn't want to put her kids through the same thing.
Alma was only five years younger than Richard...I think they married when she was at least twenty-two and had completed college.
But I can see Mary Anne having a large family since she does love kids.
I can also totally see Mary Anne teaching and raising her family in NYC since she always loved the city in the books.
It's so hard to predict this kind of thing. Not a lot of girls from my HS class have gotten married (maybe a fifth of them?) and our 10th reunion is this weekend. The girls who did get married really run the gamut from nerdy to super popular.
I can see Mallory getting married right out of college because her self-esteem is low, and she may feel like she'll never find anyone else. But also maybe things on that end will improve from her Riverbend experience.
I think Logan is my answer, actually. He just seems like the type to be very traditional and settle down right away.
This is really a comment on a few posts but I like that people are acknowledging that it can be hard to predict the future of a junior high student because they can change so much from then to being an adult. A lot of predictions of the babysitters seem to assume that they'll stay exactly the same. I see this with Mallory a lot.
