Crap . . . I admit that there's plenty of reasons for the OMO to be the OMO, in this batch of characters, so I'll say that the guess about marriage was getting warmer . . . maybe it has something to do with who they married . . .

Samwise was the only one not to marry a member of a royal family?

Turin was the only one who married his sister?

oh man, that's why I hate OMO posts, too many good and altogether simple answers to lists I thought might be complicated and have only one, tricky answer . . . both good, neither right.

On the right rack.

Hmm..... could it be Eomer, because he was the only one who didn't "grow up" with his wife or her family?

Turin --> that's obvious... Nienor is his sister
Samwise --> He knew Rosie for a long time
Aragorn --> He was fostered by Elrond, Arwen's father

Though I suspect Finwe's already got it, I'll veture another guess:
Aragorn, Sam and Turin all married after a long (more or less) wait, while Eomer, as far as I know, didn't.

Finwe got it, nice job. I wanted to be more specific, maybe I should have listed Rosie, Arwen, Niniel and Imrahil's Sister. But anyway, yeah on the money. The other's were all 'practically brothers' anyway (as in, Sam was good pals with Rosie's brothers, Aragorn was good pals with Arwen's brothers, and Turin was Nienor's brother). I guess Eomer and Imrahil became friends quick, but there was certainly no growing up with eachother going on there.
