AT LEAST. If not more. Apparently age makes no difference... But, I would rather them not get married. It would just change things too much. Plus, wouldn't it just end up like another Connie and Mitch story?Arkán Dreamwalker wrote:Aren't they at least 10 years apart?

On a more serious, but equally pointfilled note, this can not happen. EVER. End of story.
My reasoning has been stated elsewhere, but another point I wish to make is that both have been long term characters and for them to make that kind of thing happen would be a BIG shake to the show. I honestly feel that this is one of those "fandom loves" as was the case with Connie and Eugene in the early years.
Is it then not a matter of "Ew, gross!" but of logic? Well, let's look at this logically, then. If Connie left Mitch, then how can she love Jason? She realized she and Mitch would never work because Mitch lived for action. That was his calling, his life. He found danger thrilling. That life wasn't Connie's. The same would apply to Jason... until recently. Now, it seems Jason could indeed be a compatible partner for Connie. He too is soul searching, and dedicated to God, and he has certainly shown interest in romance. So, in the end, Jason and Connie isn't logically problematic.
What it comes down to is gut-instinct.
Some of us feel that Connie and Jason should get together instinctively that it would be perfect if Jason and Connie came together. The rest of us feel it's "weird." It just feels wrong. Jason has his life, Connie has hers. We are familiar with those lives. For them to be united in love would for them to be melded, for them to utterly change.
There's a reason for this. After all, when one is married, you "become one" with them.
Connie would be one with Jason.
Nope. Doesn't work.
The desire for Connie and Jason doesn't spring reasonably from elements in the story. Not everyone who pleads for Connie and Jason matrimony has heard Love is In the Air. That's the only episode with any basis for C+J heart. That's the biggest problem here. The love would have to come into motion really lat in the show's existence, with no previous lead up whatsoever. It would have nothing to do with the former world of AIO. Thus, we must assume those who wish for Connie and Jason coming together are just wanting their favorite characters to be united. (After all, is anyone in favor of the, ahem, union, not Jason-happy? Uh-uh. Those who want C+J are generally those who are big Jason fans and, often, non-Mitch fans.)
So, the other Jason is right. This is just a fan wish.
Jason, would you please just ask Monica out?
Is Monica Stone out on parole yet?
But, to say that Connie and Jason aren't compatible is pish posh! Opposites attract! And, being a friends a LONG time is a really good base of a "relationship". They have know each other for forever! They have both grown a lot in the Lord! And... They have both been single for the whole AIO existence!
If the writers decide not to match them together, I would be fine with that. BUT... They both need to find someone! They can't be single forever!
As to your assertion "opposites attract" and that they are compatible, you obviously read my post while slurping a soda. I said:
By the way, try to be careful not to get soda on your computer. But anyhow, your premise in that statement is flawed. Relationships are founded on similarities. The same religion is the biggest issue, and even seemingly little thing like similar musical tastes and past times.Pound Foolish wrote:The same would apply to Jason... until recently.

to MeltsnerGirl: Thank you very much, I appreciate that.
Whoah.... Uh "bad girls"? I'm not sure I'd go that far... I mean, sure Monica turned out to be bad, but he was falling for Monica's cover. Tasha wasn't so much a bad girl, but more of an action girl. But I will agree that they really wouldn't work out for reasons I think I've stated before.Sage wrote:Ok that would be awkward for many reasons. They have entirely different personalities. Jason seems attractive to 'the bad girls' and Connie was his employee at one time; plus Mr. Whittaker is her surrogate Father.
Amen! Hear! Hear!SparkyHappyGiraffe wrote:None of the above, thank you very much. Jason can stay single and just plain awesome!
This is exactly my opinion! I don't think any of the girls mentioned above are right for him!
