Well, certainly Utena does love Anthy. It doesn't take very much
watching of the anime to see that. Lol. To me, they will always be the
OTP of SKU. Regarding Juri? I could see her advising Utena like that,
every once in a while at leeast. Arisugawa Juri isn't known for her
openness or friendliness, but I think she definitely likes and
respects Utena, and she would want her to be happy with the woman she
loves. Just my thoughts, though. ^
