Who Will Be Mer's "Person" on Grey's Anatomy?

at . Comments

Is Cristina Yang about to be replaced as Meredith's "person" on Grey's Anatomy?

Mer's portryer, Ellen Pompeo, has made her desire for this clear a second time.

“It’s not very realistic that a married woman would have her best friend be her No. 1 before her husband,” the actress tells TV Line, echoing previous sentiments she made in previewing Season 9 earlier this fall.

“I guess if you’re 20. But for a grown woman, your No. 1 person should be your husband - or what’s the point of getting married? Your significant other should be your significant other, so hopefully we’ll transition into that.”

Ellen raises an interesting point about growing up, and the idea of marriage.

Is there a way for Derek and Cristina to co-exist in this capacity? Can Mer have two "persons" that msh seamlessly into her life?

Or, conversely, is there bound to be conflict and jealous in this regard as she grows up? Share your comments with us below.
