Jj Husband On Criminal Minds

The only other romantic storyline for JJ is the one with her coworker, Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler). In the first season, they go on what is an attempt at a date, but it doesnt amount to anything until Season 14 when she confesses that shes always loved Reid. Fans have a lot of (mostly negative) thoughts about it. But while some fans hoped for JJ and Reid to get together, and many wanted her to hook up with Emily (Paget Brewster), few feel compelled by her relationship with her actual husband, Will.

User u/Delicious_Stress1233 agreed with the original poster, writing, “He was a good husband and dad but overall weird and boring. I didnt care about him.” Many fans in the comments agreed that hes good in those roles, as hes often shown at home with the kids while JJ leaves for work, but they added that he seems to put more effort into the relationship than JJ. Perhaps its not just Will thats bothering them, but JJs lack of strong feelings for him that turns fans off. User u/the_scientist52 mentioned this, saying, “I just didnt see any chemistry between Will and JJ. I dont think he was a bad person but something about that relationship felt off.”

One of the longest-running BAU spouses is William LaMontagne, Jr., played by Josh Stewart. He and Jennifer “JJ” Jareau (A.J. Cook) meet in Season 2: Hes a cop on one of their cases in New Orleans and the two of them quickly start a relationship thats mostly off-screen — until her pregnancy convinces Will to move across the country to raise the baby together. JJ declines his Season 3 proposal until several seasons later when he nearly dies, and then they get married.

Many fans simply dont like Will, despite his overall non-offensive personality. On Reddit, user u/Deep_Worldliness4783 started an r/criminalminds thread, thinking it was an unpopular opinion to point out how much they dont like Will. But they got quite a few people agreeing with them. However, lest this be mistaken for ship wars, they qualified their statement by saying they also arent a fan of the romantic partnership of JJ and Reid. They simply find Will to be annoying with a “weird vibe.” Some fans just do not like Wills southern accent, partially because they find it hard to understand.

Unlike other network procedurals, like “Bones” or “NCIS,” CBS “Criminal Minds” has mostly avoided any inter-team relationships between its main cast members for its 15 seasons. There is no center romance between a will-they-wont-they duo, but instead, the teams significant others are mostly minor characters off to the side. This has its benefits, but it also serves to make fans less invested in these rarely seen, less developed characters.

Will’s near-death was a wake-up call for J.J.

In the Season 7 finale, Will becomes the target of domestic terrorists. Over the course of the ordeal, Will is shot, taken hostage, and strapped to a bomb before being rescued by the BAU. No longer holding to her earlier misgivings, J.J. asks Will to propose to her again so that she can say yes. The two are wed at the end of the episode and go on to welcome another son in Season 11. Over the remaining seasons of “Criminal Minds,” J.J. and Will appear to be happy and content with their choices.

However, over on Reddit, theres a thread for people to post their unpopular “Criminal Minds” opinions. Among the dozens of criticisms, several people voiced their disapproval over how J.J. treated her husband, Will (Josh Stewart), over the course of the series. Some fans, like those on the Reddit thread, believe J.J. should have done more to make Will feel important in her life. As user Ancient_Effective185 wrote, “Will deserves someone better, someone that dont treat him like a third or fourth priority in her life.”

Season after season, Will is left to run the home, raise the children, and work full-time, while J.J. and the BAU chase after serial killers throughout the country. Admittedly, Will offered to be more hands-on at home, knowing that J.J. would be unhappy leaving the BAU for a less time-demanding career. Still, even Will, as understanding as hes shown to be in the series, reached a breaking point when he complained about her frequent absences.

Will was rarely J.J.’s top priority

J.J. and Will first met in Season 2 when the BAU were in New Orleans, Louisiana, investigating a potential serial killer. At the time, Will was a detective with the New Orleans Police Department who decided to call in the BAU for help. They dated — largely in secret, per J.J.s wish — for a year before going public with their relationship. Later in the season, J.J. discovers that shes pregnant, which prompts Will to propose. Though she rebuffed the proposal, the couple remained together, and Will left New Orleans to be with J.J. and their baby.

For much of their relationship, J.J. is traveling with the BAU while Will maintains the homefront. Things continued smoothly until Season 7 when an investigation meant J.J. had to leave Will while he tended to their ill child. For the first time, Will expressed discontent with J.J.s work and her frequent absences. However, despite a momentary flash of frustration, Will accepts the reality of J.J.s occupation and her dedication to it.
