Whether Ginny has actually begun taking her formidable temper out on her husband or not, it is clear that there is a lot of stress in the Potter household. Just last weekend, the two youngest Potter children reportedly stayed for several days at the home of their uncle George Weasley, owner of Weasley Wizard Wheezes, and his wife, the ex-girlfriend of his dead twin brother. Has the Potters' fighting escalated to the point where a silencing charm is no longer enough to protect the innocence of their young children? Can Harry Potter, who was himself an orphan- unloved and abused by his muggle relatives- and Ginny Weasley, the youngest of --- children, with a workaholic father and an overworked mother, really be truested to raise children?
Even James Sirius, the eldest son of the Chosen One, doesn't seem to have escaped the unhealthy influence of his family. Last September, he was sorted into Gryffindor House, the alma mater of both of his parents, as well as all of his mother's siblings, surviving and deceased. Was the pressure to follow in his father's footsteps too much for him? It is rumored that Harry Potter influenced his own Sorting- could young James have been coerced into doing the same?
But the Potters are not alone in their relationship troubles- it seems that a certain Mrs. Hermione Weasley recently took a week-long trip to attend the wedding of her "friend" and former boyfriend, the Bulgarian Quidditch star Victor Krum. Is Ron Weasley no longer enough to satisfy Miss Granger? She has always had a taste for famous men- Before she attended the Triwizard Tournament Yule Ball with Mr. Krum in 1994, she was rumored to be dating Harry Potter. Perhaps the man who was merely a friend of the Boy Who Lived is not quite up to her standards?
