But then again Classic Lara is my fav, so of course that's who I want to see moving forward.

But even with reboot Lara, they could use the angle of her not wanting to repeat her father's mistakes. She could go down a spiraled pit of becoming what her father was and outright obsessing over these adventures, but she could be self aware and not put a family through what she went through because of her crazy ol pops therefore staying single.
The thing is the moment you start introducing children is the moment you put an expiration date on a character or even the franchise. You have to start aging them, you have to focus more on family plot points, you have to keep the family relevant, and eventually that main character is going to have to retire or die.

These things are not conducive to Tomb Raider's success. Lara is the Tomb Raider and cannot be replaced, so she needs to remain ageless. We've done the family thing since 2001, so it's time that we get back to old fashioned Tomb Raiding, globe trotting, discovering the lost mysteries of the world, etc.

That is what Tomb Raider is after all - not simply about every aspect of Lara's life.

I could see Lara adopting children to gain immortality. Corrupted by Sophia Leigh cosmetics.
