If Jo ever were to marry, she needed to find someone whose personality complemented hers, who would balance out her impulsive nature and patiently put up with her quirks.
Marmee knew that the similarity that made Jo and Laurie such close friends would have made their marriage a disaster. You are too much alike and too fond of freedom, not to mention hot tempers and strong wills, to get on happily together, in a relation which needs infinite patience and forbearance, as well as love. For all her grand imaginings and talk of adventure, Jo was at a point in her life where she was beginning to discover her place in the world as an adult.
- How the Old-School Signet Ring Found a Modern Appeal.
- Feeling Good (Signet).
- Malingery - Stealing The Truth;
She found great fulfillment in remaining with her family to be a support to Marmee as Meg and Amy left home and to care for and be a companion to her frail sister Beth; and all the while she was able to develop her passion and skill for writing and to begin using her talent as a means of helping to support her family. Even if Jo had loved him, they would have found that their lives were taking them in two opposite directions—and as neither would have wanted the other to give up their wishes and dreams, they would likely have clashed and argued after all.
Amy, who had always seen him as a noble young man capable of great things, firmly but lovingly rebuked him, tempering his wildness with the virtuous good sense by which the March family had endeared themselves to him so long ago.
She put him back on track to be a productive, mature, responsible gentleman and to use his intelligence and energy to make his grandfather proud. Meeting him did much good for Amy also, for she had hitherto been determined to marry for money regardless of love. But as she rekindled their old friendship, she began to find that all the riches her other suitors may have been able to offer were not nearly as precious as the understanding, closeness, and tenderness she found anew in Laurie.
