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 would be a afraid to get married at 18, even if I did find someone like Edward. I would be really scared that everyone would think that I was pregnant. But in the end I would suck it up and marry him at 18. I'm glad Bella agreed :D


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 personally thought that making that decision was very irresponsible. completely agreed with Edward here: He could hurt her and it wasn't worth the risk. At the very least, I thought that they could "try" once they were married, even as a human, but not before they were married.


3. Again the question arises about Edward having a soul. What do you think about this subject? Do vampires have souls?

-I believe that vampires have souls, just that they are different, so to speak, than humans. I think that their bodies are different and abnormal compared to humans, but that everything on the inside is still the same. They are still the same person that they were before they changed, just now they have some "special features" on their bodies.


But then again... what do I know?

Ha ha. But that is what I think. :D

I got married fairly young, after a 2 yr engagement - I got a LOT of head turns at the notion, while I was sure and actually we are still married, going on 10 yrs next year :D but I do understand her concerns!

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 see her points! and I think that she is also right in the fact that even though he says he could kill her, that he wouldn't! ;)

I am unsure...I would like to THINK so!

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?
I definately see her reservations.I would have made the same decision when I was her age.People tend to be judgemental and at that age you tend to care what they think.Although in saying that she has found her soulmate, the love of her life and already knows she will stay with him forever.And really what is the difference between a life as a vampire and marriage when you will be spending forever witht that person anyway?!

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 was glad that the intamamcy level got kicked up alot more.it was nice to see the progression of their relationship.The decision that was made I think was also a logical one.He wants her to have human experiences and this is what she has chosen so really he cant deny her what he keeps telling her to do.I believe Bella's reasoning saying that she doesnt think the he could hurt her,and I also see Edwards side as well.They want to be together and it was good that they talked about it clearly as well.It made it all the more intimate that they made the decision to wait(or rather he made her make that decision).I never thought he could hurt her so I understand
how much he thinks he could.Her safety is the only thing he worries about.It was a smart compromise.

3. Again the question arises about Edward having a soul. What do you think about this subject? Do vampires have souls?
I believe the Cullens have souls.Not all vampires but some.Edward for sure.He has tried to make up for being what he had no choice but to become.Even though he had no choice in the matter he tries to make up for.I believe that he would only do that because of the fact that he has a soul and is really against believing it.

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 why Bella is afraid. I don't know if it would effect my decision to get married at a young age because I'm in my 30's and single. Sometimes I wish I was married and sometimes I am glad I am not. I can not see me being married at 18 - that's for sure. I really wasn't ready until I was between 27 and 30. HOWEVER... if I met the ONE... at 18 or 80... it wouldn't matter. I'd say yes.

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 actually have to support Bella here. She has given it some thought and she knows what experience she wants to have as a human and I respect wanting to know what it is like to experience sex as a human. Really would you rather live without sex or without the prom? It's the same as "there are things I want to do before I die." I can also imagine here are ways to get around "getting hurt" so that just won't work for me.

I think they have souls. I do not think a zombie has a soul.

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, Bella is very young and extremely self-conscious, she cares what everone thinks of her and shes pretty sure people would jump to the wrong conclusion.

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?
ahaha, yeah it does jump up a notch :P. I thought it gave the book a new dimension and added a little bit more excitement. It was fun to read how they both mature and how innocent they both are. It was understandable that bella wanted that when 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?
FOR SURE !
well, it is fiction but in this book Edward deffinately has a soul !

I think that Bella don't want merry to Edward because she is very young to marry in this years ,and I think that Bella fears what happened to their parents but in reality she did not know that that will happen to them.

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 think that Bella know what she will convert to a vampire she will not be as human as she is now and she wants for her this is a totally human experience that is very important to her.

3. Again the question arises about Edward having a soul. What do you think about this subject? Do vampires have souls?
well is a fiction history but in this book a really think that vampires have a soul ,How is it possible that Edward did not have soul? it is completely imposible ^-^

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 because she is right. If I heard about someone that young getting married, I would think the same things she was worried people would think. HOWEVER, I also agree with Edward that since she was already willing to make the ultimate commitment, giving up her life for him, why does it matter what people think. Plus, I think they the both are very "old" souls, so they are much more mature than normals 17 and 18 year olds. And yes, it is somethinn that would affect my decision.

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 really enjoyed the intimacy. I kinda wish there was more, but I do agree with Edward that it was very risky. I give him major credit for holding out as long as he did!

3. Again the question arises about Edward having a soul. What do you think about this subject? Do vampires have souls?

I think the Cullens have souls. I don't think a soul is something that you can lose. I think you can taint or damage your soul, but there is no way to get rid of it. I think with all the good things the Cullens have done they have redeemed themselves several times over.

She needs to realize that she already wants to be with him forever, so what is the problem?

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?
They love each other so much, I was kinda surprised that it hasn't happened yet...

3. Again the question arises about Edward having a soul. What do you think about this subject? Do vampires have souls?
I think that if they didn't, somehow they would act or be different.

I would never get married at such a young age. But then again, Bella won't need to worry about college, getting a job and earning money, finding a home to stay, or pretty anything if she chooses Edward.

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 say GO FOR IT YOU GUIZE!. There is obviously some unhealthy levels of sexual tension between the two of them, so they might as well get that taken care of. Don't get me wrong, I am completely against pre-marital "love-making", but they pretty much know where their futures are headed-with each other. And I can never get enough of Edward in sexy-mode...*sigh*

3. Again the question arises about Edward having a soul. What do you think about this subject? Do vampires have souls?
...I don't believe in souls, gods, sins, or anything like that...
