“Twilight” It is one of the most successful sagas in cinema. In 2008 we learned about the love story between the vampire Edward Cullen and the deadly Bella Swan, played by Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stweart, becoming a box office success with millions of fans around the world.
While the story may have supernatural creatures like vampires and werewolves, it’s essentially a romantic story. The film focuses on the relationship between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen and all the obstacles they have to go through to live happily ever after. Literally. Screen Rant makes a list of some things about this couple that just don’t make any sense.
10 THINGS ABOUT BELLA AND EDWARD THAT MAKE NO SENSE
1. THE FACT THAT EDWARD WAS SO IN LOVE WITH BELLA FROM THE BEGINNING
The intensity with which Edward begins to fall in love with Bella is strange given the number of women he met in his life but who never interested him. The only explanation is that her blood was particularly intoxicating to him, but this makes the relationship seem primarily physical.
2. THAT BELLA WAS WILLING TO GIVE UP EVERYONE FOR EDWARD
While Edward’s obsession with Bella doesn’t make much sense, Bella’s obsession with Edward is explained in the story by the fact that vampires are attractive and beautiful at luring their prey. Although Bella is weak to this, it is still disturbing that she was so willing to give up her family for him.
3. THEY MARRY SO YOUNG
Bella wants to become a vampire as quickly as possible so that she and Edward will be the same age for eternity. However, it is even more ridiculous that Edward insists that she marry him first. The fact that they are getting married in such a short time after meeting is quite intense. There is no real reason why they couldn’t have waited.
4. BOTH ARE SUPPOSEDLY GREAT IN BED
Bella and Edward’s wedding night is the first time for both of them. But somehow they are both apparently good in bed and have a great time, and the truth is that this is not very realistic.
5. THE FACT THAT THEY HAD A CHILD TOGETHER
Bella never seems to want to have children, but this is not a big concern between them as they don’t think it is possible anyway. However, Bella does get pregnant. the explanation given about Renesmee’s conception is difficult to understand. It doesn’t make sense that it could have happened.
6. BELLA ALSO FELL IN LOVE WITH JACOB
After Edward leaves Bella at New Moon, she is really depressed to a very worrying degree. She finds some happiness and comfort with Jacob, although her feelings for him are not as strong as those she feels for Edward. The truth is that there is a part of her that is interested in Jacob romantically.
7. BELLA DIDN’T FIND EDWARD’S STALKING BEHAVIOR SCARY
There are times when Edward’s behavior towards Bella is quite troublesome. Things like looking at her while she sleeps (while she doesn’t know it) and following her are presented as romantic rather than creepy. Bella never had a problem with any of these behaviors, nor does she set many boundaries with Edward, he even crosses them sometimes.
8. THEY DON’T SEEM TO HAVE A LOT IN COMMON
Bella and Edward don’t show they have anything in common, in fact neither of them have really strong interests or personalities. Perhaps, that is why they get along, as they are both a bit boring.
9. THAT BELLA IS NEVER AFRAID OF EDWARD’S PHYSICAL STRENGTH
One of the terrifying characteristics of vampires is that they are so strong and fast that they are capable of killing a human easily. Bella really wouldn’t have been able to defend herself against Edward, but she never felt worried on this point. Although Edward was careful, there was always the possibility that he had accidentally hurt her.
10. EDWARD SPENT A LOT OF TIME TRYING TO GET BELLA TO LEAVE HIM
Edward is a character who hates himself very much. He thinks he’s doomed because he’s a vampire, so he doesn’t want Bella to become one. That is why he spends a great deal of time trying to convince her not to be with him and not to become a vampire. However, to avoid this he should never have dated her in the first place if he was so worried.
