That is very tragic, forced to end a relationship when neither party wanted to.

The werewolf code was only a partial reason, as you can see Griha said "That, and things just got too complicated."

It means there was something else.

One of the dangers of a long life -- lots more chances for personal tragedies.

Now that's big oof. Does rather pose the question if the other races are like that too. I'd hazard a yes given that we don't exactly ever hear of hybrids that often if ever with the other transmissible races.

Imagine the heart break as well if we're talking about one of the near immortal races dating as well. Just watching your loved ones virtually wither and die in what's comparatively a blink of the eye for you. That would just be torture.

I've worked out different details for different races. :) With werewolves though, they don't prevent hybrids because of "purity" reasons. They do so because in Marid universe werewolf hybrids are very mentally unstable and in every recorded case turn out to have sociopathic or psychopathic behavior. I'm debating on making it a lore detail were majority of the history's most brutal mass murderers have been werewolf hybrids. In Griha and John's case they didn't have that problem, as genies are not able to reproduce. I mean... what would they reproduce with? She has a tail. But even so, the stigma was still there, which affected their relationship.

And yeah, it's hard... The way I see it, a lot of ageless/immortal races would end up dating someone just because they want whatever time they can have with that person. I mean... if it were me, I would regret it way more if I chose to not be with my husband just because he would eventually pass away while I continued to be timeless. If I could have his whole life with him, then yeah. I would go for it.

I get that. But I expect after the first one or two, it would take someone very special indeed to get you to make that level of emotional commitment.

Sort of reminds me of some scenes from the first "Highlander" movie.
Who wants to live forever?

I've already buried enough people as is. Living like that sounds like absolute hell to me. Doubly so if one is a genie and at best unable to die until freed. Being a slave to a summoner conceivably for all eternity possibly living through that hell over and over... F*** that. I'd welcome death at that point.
