If the love of your life wanted to die, let's use this word couse vamp don't really exist , you won't try to convince him, in every way possible, to save him?
As I said, I merely present another argument. Some of us have gone round and round on this and other threads about this very question. We pretty much agree to disagree because many espouse a very different view of what role Jacob SHOULD play in Bella's decision. IMO...Yes, at that point, she's his whole life ( a fact which he knows could very well change at any second and without recourse). But, he isn't hers. He hates what she wants to become. So what? He disagrees with the future she chooses, but that's not his choice. Her life is hers to do with as she sees fit and no one has the right to tell another person how to live their life. He is not in a position to attempt to dictate to her what she should and should not do with her future. As her best friend, sure, offering an opinion, giving her his thoughts and feelings is one thing. But, to actively manipulate against the choice she's so clearly made is entirely another.
As for the dying question, Bella wasn't going to die, was she? She would still be a thinking, feeling, sentient being capable of loving and living. Just because Jacob didn't agree with the family she was joining, the form she would take, doesn't make the decision any less Bella's or more Jacob's. No, she would no longer be human. But, neither was Jacob.
