Well who should it be. I'm sure you all know where I stand. Wink

Tahiri Veila. Ben, after all, is made to be a "replacement" for Anakin Solo. Now they would just need Anakin's spirit to take over Ben and the two of them could live happily ever after.

As sick as the age difference might be I'm castin my vote for Tahiri. She needs some love, she needs to move past Anakin, and she needs a good man in her life. Ben could fulfill all of that.

Nope, Tahiri is far too old, and she has been Anakin's girl all along. I realize she needs someone else, but it should not be Ben. That would just be...wrong.

Hey, Star Wars novels have been trying to be edgier haven't they? haha

The age difference between Tahiri and Ben is just 14 years at maximum. Nobody has had any problem with Lando and Tendra, and Lando is at least twenty years older than she is.

Why should a man be able to marry a woman who could be his daughter when it comes to age, and a woman couldn't be with a younger man who could be her younger brother when it comes to age?

Oh, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it...morally. I just think it'd be...weird. Confused

This discussion reminds me of Anakin Skywalker and Padme. In Episode I, he was 9 and she was 14 (awkward), but in Episode II, he was 19 and she was 24 (believable), so it is awkward at times. The books have been edgier (was that the word someone used), but I hope they back off it just a little bit; the stuff in NJO didn't bother me too much but there were moments in LotF that made me think 'awkward'.

9 and 14 may be awkward, but 17 and 33(?) is far beyond that. Maybe this is just me, but, maybe, Tahiri should've just died with Anakin. The only worth while thing she did since then was become Caedus' apprentice.

In 43 ABY, Tahiri is at most 31, and perhaps just 30. Ben is 17.

For Tahiri, I would love to just see her going through the galaxy being a great Jedi (much like she seemed to be on her way becoming in Betrayal), but they decided to return her to some of her late NJO behavior.

But for Ben, I would like to see him get with one of the newer characters, and since one person is such a big fan, I'd say Seha Smile

Yeah, I always thought that, after Anakin died, Tahiri would end up alone. Not that I wish her any ill will, but it would be like Luke remarrying Neutral .

Ben & Seha Forever Very Happy

Now as for Tahiri, she needs to go find Zenoma Sekot and hook up with a Yuuzhan Vong. It'll be like old times...
