Something that always struck me about The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is how the four Pevensie children not only spend years in Narnia but grow up and become adults there, before having to return to being children in their own world. The issue of their re-adjustment to life on Earth is raised in this question, but I'm specifically interested in their change from adults to children. Their ability to re-adjust is presumably explained by the magical resetting of their minds from "Narnia mode" to "England mode", but they do retain their memories of being in Narnia.
For many people, an important difference between childhood and adulthood is the understanding and experiencing of romantic relationships, with or without related concepts such as sex and marriage. It would be very strange to be a child with memories of such knowledge, and stranger still to live as a child with memories of actual romantic experiences.
Hence my question: did Peter, Susan, Edmund, or Lucy ever marry or form any romantic or sexual relationship while in Narnia?
- The closest thing I can think of is Prince Rabadash attempting to woo Susan, but she turned him down. Maybe The Horse and His Boy is the most likely book to be able to answer my question, since although the Pevensies aren't the main characters they do appear as adults throughout.
- I realise that these are books written for children, and obviously there aren't any romantic scenes or sexual stuff. However, at least some main characters do get married (Shasta and Aravis), so the books aren't entirely devoid of such ideas.
- I would accept evidence from the books themselves, any extratextual material by the author, or good arguments based on the story of Narnia or on Lewis's beliefs. No fanfiction, unless solid arguments can be made that it's consistent with "canon" and not just titillation.
