i don't think it is. it's like in the real world. i mean actually in the real world there may be people even more rushed right? i really like them together and i can't wait to see who's gonna play teddy in the epilogue(because if they don'y put all the actions from the epilogue in the movie they are STUPID)

I think everything about Tonks and Lupin was rushed. Their marriage was rushed, Tonks's pregnancy was rushed, their son's birth was rushed and, sadly, their death was rushed too.

I love that relationship, but yes, I do feel they were probably rushed, but not unnecissarily (I totally bombed that word, I know). I feel like in the environment they were in, it wasn't rushed, because of everybody dying and, well, the whole wizarding world was rushed, wasn't it, to a certain extent? I don't know, I just felt like, under normal circumstances (bombed that one too) that was rushed, but not under the atmosphere of the wizarding world at that time.

I am a little torn between yes and no......I mean.....in HBP wasn't Mrs. Weasley complaining about wizards and witches rushing into marriage due to the dark times they were in. To me....yes....it was rushed as far as them getting married, having a baby, and dying all in one book. I really loved the idea of them being a couple. I wish JKR would have done it sooner. But hey she is the SUPER brilliant author and I am just one of her fans so what do I know. The way she put it worked. I just hate we didn't have more time to enjoy they're relationship.

life is too short to wait around for something, if you love someone what is the point of waiting.

now most people make the mistake of not waiting around for the love and they just rush into things

i wish they could have had more time together, especially with their son but i liked it Remus deserved love too

harry ϟ potter is a lifestyle

i suppose their relationship was a bit rushed but with voldemort so strong and people getting murdered all the time it's no wonder people were getting married quickly

but yeah the baby didn't seem like a deliberate thing cos of remus' outburst at grimmauld place

i'll leave that one open...

but i do wish they could have been together longer-the scene where remus comes to shell cottage breaks my heart...

i thought it was kind of rushed.
in the 6th book they kinda had a relationship, but Lupin just kept saying im too old for you or im a werewolf..but i mean they must have been in an off and on relationship or something, because they got married kinda soon.
the baby was pretty rushed too, but i guess its like Mrs. Weasley said about Bill and Fluer, more pressure to live and stuff like that in these dark times.
im just glad they had a son
but i really wished that they both didnt die!
i meant that was kind of weird that they both died.

they love each other so it's normal for them, but thinking about it, things between them were just so fast. I wish we had a book all about them, and what happened during those times. Their life and Teddy's life were somewhat like harry potter's life...

I never saw the point in him, honestly.xD

Not to come off as some cold and insensitive bum, but I just thought that JKR threw him in there...to justify their death? That's not the best wording but..something like that.xD Kinda like, "It's okay that two of the greatest characters in the entire series die...You have Teddy to make it all better!" xD

It just put a more solemn tone to it all, in my opinion. xD

Edit: The topic! xD Uhm, I don't think it was rushed. Kinda like that stolen kisses theory. It's amazing because it was kept so quiet. Giving too much detail would've killed it in my opinion. It's why I j'adore their relationship, really.

No, I don't think it was rushed at all. I think that in times of war, people look to each other for comfort, and do the things they would have done eventually anyway, just a bit sooner because they fear that the time they have left is ALL they will have left. I think that's what Remus and Dora were thinking. So they just got married.

And children follows as a natural progression of marriage--perhaps it was a bit sooner than they would have liked, but it was a natural part of their marriage and family. So Teddy wasn't really rushed.

Remember Molly and Arthur, they got married on a whim because of the first wave of the Voldy war. And they produced 7 children on account of that marriage. So quick marriages during wars is actually extremely common, according to Rowling. (Well, to the world, really--just look at history).

I dont think their marriage and all were rushed, but their deaths were an absolute rush. I wasnt expecting them to be dead and without any explaination was too much.

I don't think it was that rushed since their affection showed in Half BLood Prince and I actually guessed they would be married in Deathly Hallows quite soon. But yeah the death of them two was way too rushed!

Wow!!!! Tonks is like my favorite charecter I was sooooo happy for her and Remus. I cried when I found out the died. I think Tonks and Remus belonged together. I don't think it was rushed. Bill and Fluer got married fast. I was glad they had a kid. I thought it was awesome that Teddy was like Tonks and could change what he looked like. What is that called? I will remember eventualy

I did find it all a bit rushed, but maybe it was just because we didn’t see the whole thing and only got glimpses of their relationship throughout the last two books. Now their death really annoyed me it wouldn’t have been difficult to at least tell us how they died.

I think it just seems rushed because we didn't hear much about them through the progression of the book.
I really would have liked to heard more of them. They're my favorite couple and my two favorite characters.

I don't think it was rushed at all. Because if any of you have seen HBP yet than at the Burrow fight scene Remus goes after Harry and Ginny and tonks shouts 'Remus!' and follows. So I think their relationship started in Harry's, Ron's, and Hermione's 6th year. Then, that gradually became a marriage. Finally, it became what Harry's family was until Voldemort came; A Mum, A Dad, and a child. So of course it's still your opinion but my answer is..... No I do not think it was rushed in the slightest bit...

I thought it was rushed, but I'm not really complaining either.
It seems like after Sirius died Tonks just wanted to cling to someone so she acted on her feelings for Remus. We hear about them getting together, and then BAM! Teddy is on the way... Maybe the felt that they might not make it through the Battle and they needed to act on their feelings now because they might not ever get another chance..

You know, I don't think it was all that rushed. You must remember, this was a time of war. People were uncertain if they'd ever see their loved ones again, and they wanted to make the most of the time they had left with each other. Tonks and Lupin were no different. They were in love, and they needed to show it as much and as fast as they could, before the very real possibility that one or both of them would die as a cause of the war became a reality.

Well there are more important things going on. The book is focused entirely on Harrys point of view (well 3rd person, talking pacifically about Harrys feeling and assumptions) so I imagine that everyone (not including Ron, Harry or hermione) where missed out. Thats what its been like in all of the books. Jk didn't talk more about Remus and Tonks because they weren't really the characters she was focusing on. For example, we didn't actually know where Ron was and what he was doing after he left Harry and hermione did we? And that's because he wasn't in Harrys presence. Only people who are in his presence at a certain time can be described and portrayed as the stories are about him. That's obviously why the books are titled Harry potter. Jk wouldn't have named them like Ron weasley and the DH if the book was focused on a completely different person through the whole series. I hope this makes sense to you and I hope it's helped.

Well.....I guess it depends on what kind os way you look at it, you know. When I told that to my friend she kind of said what you did. And i was like 'well...yup.' I am still upset by their deaths though.

I don't think it was rushed, but I do wish that a bit more of their story had been written. I know it's not "Tonks&Lupin and Harry Potter and something something", but it would still be good to have read about their deaths, a bit more about Teddy, their wedding etc.

I think the reason why it was a bit rushed, was because it wasn't the relationship J.K. wanted to focus on, but she still wanted a happy ending for them and the main point, a baby who lost his parents but grew up perfectly fine without them, so differently from Harry. She wanted the fans to know that it is possible to grow up and have a good life as long as you have people around you who cares and loves you.

I hoped for a bit more detail, and wantedd to know how they died, after all, she's supposed to be an Auror, and I always got the impression Lupin was a good duellor.
