Visitor wrote:But then you have to consider this . . . Bella chose to marry Edward believing she’d go childless. Edward chose to marry Bella believing that she could do better. Bella chose to let go of Jacob believing that she would never be able to love him enough. Those were all difficult choices. And yet the choices themselves (and the trajectory of those choices) were almost completely unaffected by the goings on in BD. It’s the rewards that changed. That is not the fault of the characters.
But Alice only knows something once someone's mind is made up. So even if Edward doesn't know that he is in love with Bella, consciously, he must know on a subconscious level. I appreciate your perspective on this, but I'd say that his conscious would have eventually caught up with his subconscious.

An end that resulted Nessie. SM has stated that the purpose of BD was Nessie's creation. So, taken that into consideration, Bella and Edward had to be together.
Visitor wrote: I think SM may have seen Nessie as a way of expanding on the type of life Edward and Bella could have together. I don’t think we are supposed to infer that Nessie is the only reason they exist together as a unit.
he's not going to let her die in his arms when he knows what her choice has been all along.
