Attention - This post is a reply to a post (deleted) which stated, among others, that Hurin deserved more to be "raised to the status of an Elf" than Huor. I added this explanation and I removed the name of the postAuthorID of the deletd post, because otherwise my post would make no sense:
It was Tuor who was joined among the Firstborn, not Huor, and it is a very logical decision of the Powers because Tuor did not have any dealings with decent, noble Men, but only with Easterlings which enslaved him and tried to break his pride, and with their other slaves, miserable and pathetic. His father Huor died before he was born snd his mother Rian abandoned him while he was still a newborn baby, and went to die on the grave of Huor. Tuor was raised by an Elf Annael, then guided to Gondolin by another Elf, Voronwe, then became like a foster son to yet another Elf, Turgon and married and Elf maiden Idril... So it would be really cruel if he should be sundered from Elves for eternity - he really WAS an Elf!...
As for Hurin, the inverse is true: he certainly would not choose to be sundered from Morwen and his children, even if he could to go to Valinor. He was Hurin Thalion, Hurin the Steadfast!
