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

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.

Ellen you are amazing. I love how she speaks her mind about things, and she's so right! That friendship needs to change, it's unhealthy, unrealistic and not normal for grown ups. Unlike how the Meredith/Alex is and Mark/Derek friendship was.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
