How deep the rabbit-hole goes

Indeed, wanting the main character to end up in a relationship with a tertiary character is an unpopular opinion.And all this is part of why I stopped doing anything with shipping until Meiko existed. Those three are really a mess. The dub preferred one pair, the original was heading to another, the guys are the most popular non-het, so Meiko solves all. And I just like her. ...Sora probably could have gotten better. I always thought it was a bit weird.
Which is why I'm kinda weirded out that they kept it "all in the family" amongst the CC. I think the best way for them to build better relationships with the broader global community would be to have non-CC relationships slowly populate the world with partners from this seed group. Perhaps I'd be okay with one intra CC relationship, but I think on an organic level, it'd make more sense for these relationships to develop with people outside of the group.
Honestly, I want Tai to end up with someone who has NEVER had a Digimon partner, because it would provide a healthy balance and sense of normalcy for him.
Perhaps this isn't a popular opinion, but in spite of people citing Tai as hogging the attention from the other CC, I actually happen to find Tai likeable. I can't explain what it is about Tai, but he comes off both humble and genuine.
So these are my contributions for unpopular opinions.
Even for me, who doesn't take a lot of interest in ships, I consider this a really disastrous idea.
Imagine Romeo and Juliet, but instead of ending up with Juliet, Romeo makes kids with Isabelle, the maid who has been mentioned once in the whole novel (no need to search, this character doesn’t exist).
It may be "realistic" but what a dreadful lack of romanticism.
It's a shonen. There's not meant to be romance in the first place. Especially with them being ten year olds. They just skipped 30 years and took 30 seconds to randomly pair some
Also... are you saying the lead female and male should always date? How boring fiction would be if that was law. The two lead male and female is usually boringly cliche.
R&J is a romance novel and includes both their names in the title. Digimon isn't a romance anime called Tai and Sora.
