ok so here is the thing, I love Carlisle, i think he's a great family leader but i actually came looking for a character dis Forum to talk about two things, both could be seen flaws depending on how you look at it.
one in NM Carlisle claimed to already consider Bella to be apart of the family and yet when Eddie decided to leave he didn't try and talk to her at all, i mean if he had just had the intire family Including Bella sit down for a talk the whole mess could have been avoided. Now i'm not saying i think it was easy of him i'm sure it was heartbreaking, i would just love to know what he was thinking was, and what he thought the out come would be.
the second is from BD, it's the chapter where Jake goes over to the Cullens looking for a fight and fins Bella preggers, when Jake and Ed were talking outside Ed made it sound like Carlisle would have gone through with forceing an abortion on Bella if Emse hadn't been so against it. i have a hard time swallowing this. Now, while I don't agree with either Ed or Jake's want to do this I do UNDERSTAND where both characters are coming from, mainly their fear of loosing Bella blinding their better judgment but i don't get Carlisle the only i can think of is that maybe it stems from him being from the 1600's where it would have been the husband making those dissions but even then Carlise always seemed so good at addapting it's hard to see him still thinking like that.
this has really been bugging me for awhile and i would love to know what other people think, cause i've gone over it in my head a hundred times and i only end up feeling like this
I'm hoping maybe someone here can shed some light in this for me please?
