Jennifer This answer contains spoilers… view jk [I read this book for the first time about 25 years ago and have since read it many times, so my answer doesn't come as a new reader. I would have been so disappointed if Laurie and Jo had ended up together. As friends they were perfect, but as husband and wife they would have been miserable. How many times throughout the first half of the book did Laurie want to do something crazy and Jo encouraged him even though she knew she shouldn't.
They were too much alike and would have fought constantly, hated the roles the other demanded from them, and encouraged each other in wrong pursuits. Wanted woman just to jo on the other hand was the perfect balance for Lauries impetiousness and could fulfill the role society demanded of her and was happy in juzt role.

The most important thing is: Jo did not love Laurie, Wanted woman just to jo she should NOT Woman hangs herself webcam to marry someone justt she did not love!
