I don't want to care about J.K. Rowling's recent comments as much as I do because 1) they change nothing. They have been written together- they are together. But, mostly, because I loved that romance was never the focus. The war, friendship, loyalty, LOVE- that was the focus. Not who ended up with whom. This long afterwards, the comments are diminishing the importance of the series.... Also, Harry/Hermione? yeck.
