1. Why is Edward now willing to change Bella into a vampire (provided she marries him) after being dead set against it for so long?- At this point, I think he realizes how Bella feels about growing old w/ him (when he won't be aging at all!). He understands & maybe he is thinking about how he will feel if he were never to change her. He would have to see her die, I don't think he can handle that.
2. Why is it still so important to him that she marry him before he changes her? Is there more to this than a strategy to delay her?- I think he wants her to experience all that she can as human first before she is transformed, including a "perfect wedding". XD
3. Why is Bella so panicked at the thought of marrying Edward? Is there more to her reaction than she is saying? Does she actually understand her own reasons completely?- She doesn't seem the type to marry, but might be just nervous, excited, and all emotions! She finally gets her man and gets to have a "night" w/ him as well.
4. After the epiphanies of NM, how could Edward still imagine being immortal was more important to Bella than her love for him?
- Couldn't have said it better myself.

5. Edward says that changing Bella is the most selfish thing he will ever do. Why is he nevertheless prepared to do it? Is this morally weak of him?- If Bella is willing, I don't consider it selfish.
