1. Can you see why Bella is afraid to marry Edward? Is it something that would affect your decision to get married at a young age?
Yes, I can see it. She's afraid of what everyone else will think about her. Especially her mother. But that should not matter. If she is sure about Edward and sure that she wants to be with him for ever, that is the only thing that matters. I have been with the same guy for ten years now (since I was 19), so the second half of the question does not really apply to me. But I did move far away to live with him when I was not much older than Bella, and I didn't really care what other people meant.
2. The intimacy level between Edward and Bella really jumps up a notch here. How did you feel about that? How do you feel about their decision to try to make love while Bella was still human?
I loved that they were becoming more intimate with eachother. It was the natural progress of their relationship. I didn't think that Edward would give in so easily. But I always thought that Edward was getting more and more control of himself, so I believed that he would not hurt her. And he wants it as much as she does, he has just had to be the responsible one. Anyway, I wanted them to try, while she was still human.
3. Again the question arises about Edward having a soul. What do you think about this subject? Do vampires have souls?
Hard question for me to answer, since I am not a religious person. But what I mean when I think about someone having a soul, is some core inside oneself. Our thoughts and our personalities. Something that is distinct for that one person. And I definitely believe that Edward has that. He has this wonderful personality, he has a sense of moral and he is a good person. He is capable of never-ending love, of compassion. So yes, using my defintion of soul, Edward has one, like the rest of us.
