5 reasons Rory should have ended up with Logan (& 5 she made the right decision)
At the end of season 7 of Gilmore GirlsLogan asked Rory an important question: would she marry him? While Rory loved Logan and enjoyed all the good memories they shared, she said no because she didn’t think it was the right time. This meant they went their separate ways and Logan continued the momentum and Rory went to work for Obama’s presidential campaign.
While many fans of Gilmore Girls like that, Rory turned Logan’s offer down as they understand his reasoning, others think maybe these two were meant to be. It is possible to see this situation from both angles.
ten Should have ended up with Logan: they could have survived a long distance again
Long-distance relationships can be incredibly difficult for couples as they have experiences the other person cannot be there for, and it’s easy to feel that the original spark can no longer be captured. While Logan influenced Rory in terrible ways, many fans believe they had a sweet relationship, and that’s partly because they were able to deal with dating when Rory was at Yale and Logan was working in London. If Rory had accepted Logan’s proposal, they could have stayed together if Logan had moved to California and Rory had been traveling for a while. They didn’t always have to be in one place, and their love seemed super strong and solid.
9 Made the right decision: she continued her career path on her own terms
Rory has always been determined to be a journalist and to travel. No one at Stars Hollow ever doubted that she would find success, and by the time she finished Yale, she was ready to step out into the world, see amazing things and start writing about it. Rory made the right choice when she said no to Logan’s marriage proposal because she was able to continue her career and follow his heart. Instead of moving to the city Logan wanted and perhaps finding a lackluster job, she was able to travel with a political campaign, which set her on an interesting trajectory. Fans loved that Rory came first.
8 Should have ended up with Logan: Rory could have found opportunities in San Francisco or been independent
Logan had a job offer in San Francisco, and he asked Rory if she would marry him and move there with him. While some viewers saw this as problematic, as it was his whole idea and on his terms, what if it proved he loved her and wanted them to have a future together?
If Rory and Logan had gotten engaged at the end of Season 7, Rory could have moved to San Francisco, and it seems likely that she could find a great job. Even if she couldn’t find a perfect job, couldn’t she become a freelance writer? In the revival, Rory had aspirations of independent journalism, so this seemed to be something he would be interested in.
7 Made the right decision: she was not ready to settle down even in the revival
It was really a shock to see Rory and Logan’s affair in One year in the life. Fans who shipped this couple have definitely wondered why Logan was engaged to Odette, not Rory. Why weren’t Logan and Rory in a real relationship? Why was Rory also seeing Paul? It seems Rory was right to say no to Logan because even many years later in the revival, she clearly wasn’t ready to settle down. Rory was still thinking about her career and her life and she felt that everything was in total chaos. It seems like it was never fair for her and Logan to really engage.
6 Should have ended up with Logan: Rory didn’t find anyone she really loved after him
While Logan and Rory were both wrong to maintain an affair, Rory proved that after their breakup at the end of Season 7, she never found someone she loved as much as Logan. She ignored Paul, who she was supposed to be in a relationship with, and there was no evidence that she had a great romance between the Season 7 finale and the rebirth episode “Fall”. This suggests that her feelings for Logan were pure and that there was no reason to believe that they couldn’t be successful as a married couple.
5 Made the right decision: she didn’t feel comfortable with Mitchum
No Gilmore Girls the fan may forget the moment Logan’s dad, Mitchum, told Rory she didn’t have what she needed to be a journalist. It was a painful moment, although some fans believe Rory could have taken Mitchum’s advice and made more effort to improve in his field. If Rory had said yes to Logan, she would have had to endure Mitchum’s disapproval and hatred for the rest of her life, and that seems like a hard thing to come to terms with. Rory was already facing family tensions, and it was asking a lot of Rory to be part of Logan’s family. No one can blame him for not wanting to spend more time with them.
4 Should have ended up with Logan: his proposal came with strings, but it was a logical time to get married
On the one hand, it seems that Rory and Logan were too young to get married, as they had just graduated from school and started a career. But on the other hand, why not get married and discover their young adult life together?
It’s possible to see why Logan came up with this at the time he did, as he and Rory could have embraced adulthood and been there for each other as they struggled, made mistakes and were learning. While the proposal came with the chain to move to a certain location, what if they fixed that?
3 Made the right decision: her mother was not sold on Logan
Of course, Rory wanted Lorelai to love all of her partners, and it was really hard for Lorelai to forget that Logan was a rich person. She didn’t like him because of this past, and she wasn’t convinced that he could be what Rory wanted him to be. Fans who think Rory was right when she said she couldn’t marry Logan will likely agree that this was a problem Lorelai didn’t like Logan. If Rory was going to marry someone, she would definitely want her mother to approve of her, as that would make many Friday night dinners and other family events awkward.
2 Should have ended up with Logan: he is most likely the father of her child
One year in the life raised many questions and after hearing Rory tell Lorelai that she was pregnant, fans are convinced that Logan is the father of this baby. If that’s true, then they’ll be navigating co-parenting together in the future, and that’s another reason Logan and Rory might be meant to be. Instead of staying apart and never talking to each other again, they’ve found a way back to each other’s adult lives, which suggests their romance matters. It would be heartwarming and heartwarming to see them raise their child together and there is a lot Gilmore Girls viewers who would find it incredibly romantic.
1 Made the right decision: she could be a single mom like Lorelai
While it would make sense for Rory and Logan to stay together and start a family, it’s also possible to imagine Rory as a single parent. Of course, fans loved the significance of those last four words of the cover, as it seemed like Gilmore’s story was repeating itself. Lorelai was such a cool and fun mom and provided such a fun and meaningful life for Rory, and it looks like Rory would be more than happy to continue this tradition with her own child. It’s also true that Lorelai would be a proud grandmother and be there for Rory every step of the way, as she always has been. Even fans who love Logan can admit it would be a compelling and meaningful ending.
