There are several major moments in the final Harry Potter film that have stuck with fans over the years.
But a firm favourite is perhaps when Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger finally realised their feelings for one another and kissed in the Chamber of Secrets.
The tension between the two had been mounting over the series and many people were thrilled to see them come together and start a family at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two.
However there are some people out there who weren't so keen on the idea of the two being in a relationship.
The long-running debate about the pairing has been reignited this week thanks to a viral fan theory shared on Twitter, claiming the couple were likely to have gotten divorced by now.
Journalist Jennifer Wright tweeted her thoughts on the subject, garnering thousands of likes and retweets.
She wrote: "I spend a lot of time thinking about whether Ron and Hermione got a divorce and I'm 70 percent sure that they did.
"They have nothing in common besides the war. Their relationship is a daily reminder of everyone and everything they lost.
"In a kinder world, Ron and Hermione would send each other Christmas cards and hang out once or twice a year when they were in the same town. Mostly they'd talk s**t about Snape."
She added: "Anyhow, I think 'we're both traumatized' is a terrible reason to get married at 18. I can see how it happens, but think Hermione would be smart enough to rethink this later."
Jennifer isn't the only one who thinks the relationship might have been a bit of a mistake, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling herself has previously admitted to having some regrets about the pairing.
Back in 2014, in an interview with Wonderland, she said: "I wrote the Hermione-Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment. That's how it was conceived, really.
"For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron."
She added: "I know, I'm sorry, I can head the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I'm absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people's hearts by saying this? I hope not."
Emma Watson, who portrayed Hermione in the films, also questioned the relationship's future in the same interview, she said: "I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy."
Some Twitter fans agreed, with one commenting on Jennifer's post saying: "As a kid reading as they came out, I called them. Now as an adult, I feel like they were very ill-suited and Hermione deserved better. I maintain she left Ron for someone in the Ministry who got her."
Another replied: "Definitely. Hermione and Harry would've made perfect sense. Hermione and Ron never made ANY."
However others were outraged by the suggestion that the pair weren't good together.
"I loved Hermione and Ron," commented someone else. "I think he grew up."
A second pointed out that people don't give Ron's character nearly enough credit.
"Ron never got credit for how clever he was. I mean, he beat McGonagall's chess board in first year. He was a prefect. He was loyal as hell. And all he needed to be a star Quidditch player was a little confidence. Just because he was lazy doesn't mean he was undeserving."
