ready for some Jotaro Headcanons? (do not reblog)
Me too, lets do this.
Her name is Bethany, she and Jotaro became friends in college, she was a transfer student from Italy at the time, he still went to a college in Japan just further away from home. At the time between trying to ignore his PTSD and depression (both of course didn’t work) he was also getting weirdly concerned about what society wanted (you know, he’s aro ace, he doesn’t know that’s a normal thing, he doesn’t want to deal with it, but society is telling him he’s broken and after everything that went on, he’s not surprised).
Sophomore year in college is when Bethany asks if he’s ever been in a relationship, he says no and they kinda get together then. Jotaro trying his best which is not good regardless. He figures sticking with someone who’s at least a friend would make things easier. going through the motions that he later determines was a mistake, he didn’t need to but he did anyway.
ENDS UP GETTING HER PREGNANT. First and last time he ever does that. they’re both stuck in a situation that back then you gotta marry whoever you knocked up because otherwise it’s an extreme taboo and everyone frowns on that. Don’t wanna cause more attention to himself and drag Bethany down with him, so they both agree to go ahead and get married.
Jotaro isn’t very excited to be a father but whenever its brought up he forces a smile. They try to be a happy family. Jotaro himself fighting between ptsd, depression, conforming to society ‘rules’, unintentionally expecting, getting married and college, he’s pushing himself further and further away from his family as a means to cope with it. Does Not Get Help Like He Should.
Not only is he miserable, by extension of his behavior, so is Bethy. In the end, he’s disconnected himself from his family so much around the time Jolyne is 6, he takes whatever opportunity and excuse to stay away from them. even worse when he finds out stand users attract other stand users. Uses that as another reason to stay away so he doesn’t put Bethany and Jolyne in danger. At the time he’s 29, they’re still not divorced because of how society determines that as a taboo, but its quickly dying out
