Tywin Lannister

Why didn't he just remarry? I get that he grieved for his wife and genuinely loved her, but still after a few years he should've logically remarried, especially since his Jaime joined the KG. He obviously didn't want Tyrion to be his heir. We know that he wasn't celibat and always "put family first"

Who do you think he'd marry?

    its because GRRM is obsessed with twisting everything into a dark parody of itself. In this case he goes on about how Tywin really had "true love" for his wife and he twists it around by characterising Tywin as a bitter and loveless widower. Of course GRRM wasn't satisfied with this and later revealed that Tywin was as much of a prostitutemonger as Tyrion.

      I'm ok with that. But in the world of Asoiaf and medieval society, Tywin should have remarried after a few years.
      The "Tywin as a bitter and loveless widower." could still work, look at Bobby B and Lyana.
      Tywin has a new wife but doesn't care about her in the slightest and the reveals that he was also a prostitutemonger could still work.

        I honestly don't care. It's a shitty series and I regret wasting so much time on a dead series. I wish I could somehow reclaim all the time I spent on the books, discussing crack theories in the westeros forum or reading the fanfiction

          You can't get that time back, but what are you doing now to use your time more effectively? For me I replaced drinking with visiting art museums (I was also going to read the classics but that's hard to do while traveling so I mainly read japanese LNs).

      He was still very salty he never got to frick over Aerys for whatever he did to his wife I guess he wanted to continue keeping up this image his family was perfect outwardly Tywin was very much obsessed with this idea maybe the grief played apart of this obsession so he could sneak around and frick prostitutes without anyone suspecting

      I like that how it really hammers home Tyrion's last words that he really is Tywin's son it makes his death all the more tragic especially if the rumours of Jaime and Cersei being Aerys bastard children turn out to be true Tyrion essentially is a perfect reflection of Tywin's bitterness and spite

    Because human beings doesn't live their lives according to some min-maxing videogame logic.

    Man was very focused on his legacy and achievement and another one didn’t come along. He could have gotten remarried but didn’t seem to have the time.

      Plus he had always hoped that once he became Hand, he would get Jaime out of the Kingsguard and have him as his heir again
      It's clear during their reunion in ASoS, when Jaime refuses to leave the Kingsguard, that he was genuinly hurt and surprised that his son would chose to remain a "mere" servant and knight over being the great Lord of Casterly Rock

      He spent Over fifteen years with nothing much to do other than keeping control over the Westerlands and watching Euron burn his fleet

    Well, he actually was a massive hypocrite. He didn’t remarry because he loved his wife. Also, remarrying would’ve signalled that something was wrong and he didn’t want to show weakness.

    I wish I could still enjoy this story. It's a narrative that is simply too dependent on an ending that will never come.

    Why would he remarry? He still has 3 children who could be his heirs. Sure Jamie is in KG but Tywin could in principle try to relieve him and make him lord of CR. Something he came very close to in 3rd book.

    What other reason is there?

      I get the sense that-- after Bran--George has no idea what to do with Stoneheart. I could be wrong, but the Riverlands plot seems wayyyy too goofy at this point with Brienne taking Jamie to undead Catelyn who is intent on murdering anyone even tangentially related to the RW. Considering one of the last things she remembers is a man saying, "Jamie Lannister sends his regards." and stabbing her son through the heart, any sort of conclusion that doesn't end in Jamie's immediate death is going to be a Marvel-tier situation.

      >Brienne: Jamie, Catelyn start isn't dead! She's been resurrected by the Fire God and is now a Zombie!
      >Jamie: Zombies, I hate zombies. They give me the creeps!
      >Brienne's eyes widen as she looks past Jamie
      >Jamie: She's right behind me, isn't she?

      I do like the "Brienne was blessed by the Old Gods" theory, but even that is some convoluted shit that doesn't really fit with what we've seen in the story so far. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think the Riverlands has been fricking with George now for 15 years.

        It’s going to be funny when Winds of Winter comes out, if it ever does, and Jaime gets hanged by Lady Stoneheart rather anticlimactically near the beginning of the book. All that buildup for nothing.

        people easily forget how many random mystery boxes george has set up that he needs to resolve
        howland reed, jaqen, quaithe, roose bolton, dozens more
        i don't think the big picture stuff holds him back half as much as these

          That's why he needs to swallow his pride and bring in some fresh talent to help him. Another set of eyes on pages could make all the difference in the world.

    I love all this discussion for a series that will either disappoint millions or will never be finished. I was a huge fan of the series myself but have moved on to better things like reading novels that have actual endings.

    Like his brother said to Cersei when she was imprisoned, a part of Tywin died with his wife. He used to smile and be jovial with those close to him, but now is just filled with sadness, anger and regret. He doesn't marry again not just because he loved his wife, but because he literally is incapable of loving anyone to that extent again. Additionally, he's too old for any worthwhile political marriages, especially since his daughter married the king.
