Plus, is it just me, or does the guy who (I'm guessing, since she has children and grandchildren) Rose marries after Jack dies, have the most thankless job in the known universe? Sure, being married to Kate Winslet would be nice, but imagine having to compete with Jack...
Nah, wouldn't be a problem at all. The main weakness with Titanic
is that while their love is necessary to drive the plot, the truth is Rose and Jack barely know each other, and thus never move past the infatuation stage. Plus, they only shag once.
So, if you marry Rose, not only do you get her for more than a few days, you get to know her much better than Jack ever did; I call that a win. (As for the reunion coda, it could simply have been a dream.)
