Should you make it to heaven, you love should only be for God. I found that Barney's character was basically ruined from the ending. Did it help him in any way reach his goal of dating Robin again or how he met The Mother? In real life, when someone tells you that, it's time to move on. It felt like the writers came up with the ending early on and refused to change it even though the story and characters started heading in a different direction than they planned. Sure, he still shares stories about Tracy because that's the premise he's using to tell his kids this story, so he has to give 'em something.
The show, even admitted at the end, was literally a show about how Ted was in love with Robin. So yes, seeing someone portrayed as lesser than because she couldn't have kids which was one of the reasons she knew her and Ted couldn't work out is offensive. Not to hook up with your ex. I get it, as a writer, wanting to accomplish it the way they did, but I think it misses the boat for the viewer who became invested in the story. Yeah, it was actually about Robin! Season 9 adds the flash forwards so we can see snippets of how great their relationship was. The original ending scraps it all because the story was just an excuse to get permission from his kids to date Robin again.
After previously having submitted himself to become a judge, Marshall received a call to welcome him to the last remaining spot available for a bench seat. Not getting a happy ending doesn't make it great by itself, it's all about how the story is told. Or does the person you originally gave your heart to get to spend eternity waiting for a reunion that'll never come? Robin is the one who struggled with wanting Ted from right before her own wedding until after the mother died. He is a self proclaimed romantic, but the truth is that he was more obsessed with the idea of being a romantic than actually being one. You kind of get the feeling that Ted just used Tracy to get the family he wanted while Robin was getting the career she wanted, and when Robin was happy with her career she got the instant family Ted had waiting for her. It's ok that they didn't want to settle.
Perhaps if we had an entire season watching Barney and Robin contrasted with Ted and The Mother in their respective relationships I might feel very differently.

Through his struggles, he achieves this goal, then the writers decide literally in the last five minutes that the main focus of the story should probably be the epilogue instead. The writers flopped on what they're usually very good at.

But her reveal came at the end of the episode. How I Met Your Mother is always at its best when it makes an earnest effort to progress the life stories of its characters and, as expected, the season finale doesn't disappoint. However, i agree that the original ending is soul shattering for anyone who enjoys conventional resolutions in modern literature.
Personally, I thought the ending was great. Either way someone will be left waiting in vain. It was a really uncomfortable scene and made me despise Barney as a character yet this is supposed to be the closing moment of his character arc. If you take emotion and bias out of the mix, this is a narrative masterpiece. If you marry after your spouse died who is your second spouse supposed to be with in heaven? Even if you hated all of season 9, you could literally stop at S8E24 and that's nearly 200 episodes.
We spent 3 episodes directly dealing with the death of Marshalls father. Finally, he can now truly move on and learn that there is no 'one', and you must keep seeking out new people. He repeatedly dropped women for shallow reasons. Neither were married, hence why he is even telling the story to the kids in the first place he is going after Robin as he promised so many years before and needs their permission. We would lose nothing and gain a lot if they hadn't gone so far out of t heir way to be as ham-handed as possible in doing this. So narratively the original ending makes sense in those terms. That is, unless Lilly nixes the idea.
They just couldn't compromise and give up other things they wanted. And even when our expectations aren't met, we can still find the upside to things. No, it was just a nice story. One ticket to Farhampton, please. The alternate ending makes it very clear with Future Ted's voice too! It also makes everything seem cheap. He devolved back into the immature pickup artist he started out as, like nothing happened. Even though it makes sense narratively looking at the entire series as a whole from the pilot , I think it does a great disservice to what series ended up becoming, and it erases the personal growth you mentioned above.
And that shouldn't stop us from doing what makes us happy! So it makes sense narratively, even though it was emotionally unsatisfying. After all, Lilly and Marshall are moving to Rome, and Robin — who he may or may not still have feelings for — is marrying Barney. I'm sorry but as an infertile woman that was just a slap in the face. I totally can understand why someone might like this ending, but for me it was a massive slap in the face to everything that the show was known for. If they had met at any point before the wedding, it wouldn't have work out. One thing I've determined about this sub, is that its members tend to have expectations of the show, and can't passed that.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. Happy endings are a rare thing. Being with someone else in my opinion is like saying you don't care about them at all. Just because someone couldn't be patient to be reunited with their loved one in the afterlife. I wasn't thrilled with the ending, but it made sense and is easily acceptable based on Ted's constructed character. Not to mention unless you've had to except that your body has failed to do exactly what it was biologically designed to do you don't understand how heartbreaking that is. Just because someone couldn't be patient to be reunited with their loved one in the afterlife.
