Even though Jacob is always trying to convince Bella that he's normal and Edward's not, imprinting is pretty un-normal. Plus, one of the big reasons I never wanted Jacob and Bella to be together is that I imagined the possablity of Jacob imprinting: He obviously wasn't imprinting on Bella, because as we know it happens at first sight. Imagine if Bella had given up on Edward, loved Jacob, they got married, maybe had kids, and then . . . Jacob imprinted on someone else. It would be like Leah's heartbreak times ten. And the 'Emily' in this case would be in a horrible position: tempted to love a man who devoted his entire self to her, but she would also be taking away a husband and father (if it went as far as marriage and kids, assuming). Now I KNOW that not every wolf imprints, but the possability is always out there.
see i always thought jake was the exception. that he wouldn't imprint. imprinting is just SO NOT jake, you know? but i do see what you're saying, and it makes a lot of sense.
however, with bella, it wouldn't be so bad, because edward would always be there. although then they'd be a seventeen-year-old and a grown woman and that would be creepy.
