Jumping into Harry Potter Meta|
*wandered in off Metafandom*
In all fairness, Ron's reaction to Ginny's love life is the archetypal older sibling response to the thought of a younger sibling actually, y'know, being grown up. I know that the first proper boyfriend I had, my elder male cousins (to whom I'm very close) freaked out and were ready to put the poor lad through the Spanish Inquisition. They did give my little sister's fella a grilling. In a family where there's six over-protective elder brothers and one baby sister, not to mention a mother who will hold him personally responsible for everything realating to said baby sister, I can see Ron's response as perfectly natural. Boys are all for the snogging as long as its not their baby sisters doing it.

Yes, that's a good point. And it's not just Ron - it's the twins, too. I remember when I first read that part I said to my daughters (with whom I was reading it) "It must be hell to be a teenage girl with six older brothers."
Thanks for wandering by!
