Outlander Season 2 & Sam Heughan. Why Does Jamie Fraser Prefer Claire To Laoghaire?
Outlander Season 2 & Sam Heughan. From her childhood, Laoghaire MacKenzie (actress Nell Hudson) has been in love with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). In fact, from the first time she saw him entering the castle. She was a little girl but she thought she will marry him someday. Now, the 17-year-old girl is jealous of Claire Beauchamp (Caitriona Balfe) and believe she stole her boyfriend.
Laoghaire cannot understand the motives why Jamie Fraser married Claire and she is not willing to accept this union.
The girl has several reasons to believe that this marriage is the result of magic. Claire is a sorceress and has poisoned Jamie.
Firstly, Jamie agreed to be punished (beaten) instead of the girl when they went to punish Laoghaire due to her ‘indecent’ behavior.
Also, Jamie had kissed her with great passion.
Finally, both of them are handsome, belong to the same clan and culture, and they would raise brave Scots children.
However, Claire is older than Laoghaire (maybe too old to have children in the 18th century), English and absolutely strange.
Laoghaire’s opinion is shared by many people. Then, why does Jamie prefer Claire? It is true that at first it was a marriage of convenience but now and in spite of their discussions (what couple does not have arguments?), both of them are in love.
Jamie Fraser is a very intelligent man. He wants to learn and from the first moment, he sensed that Claire was a source of knowledge, a different personality to share a life. Furthermore, he is brave and Claire is a challenge. Thus, he prefers the old (but sexy) English woman to Laoghaire. A shame for her! Although, maybe she has to wait. The future is uncertain and… You never know!
