FIRST of all, what is it exactly that you think i'm not understanding?

i understand that edward was terrified of losing bella, that he was afraid for her, and that he loved her very much, and that those are the things that moved him to act the way he did, rather than any negative character trait other than a tendency towards over-reaction. what more is there kachiti?

is it possible that maybe i'm considering this from an objective point of view because we judge right and wrong objectively? or we should. we can judge whether or not things are excusable with a bias, but right and wrong need to be on a different level, so to speak. so if i say that what edward did was wrong, that's on a different level of emotion than when i say that what edward did was excusable in light of the circumstances.

before you ladies decide to rip apart my posts on account of the fact that i haven't lived through abuse, get your facts straight. i have. i resent this dismissal of my opinions, and all the reasons that have been stated that were meant to make my opinions non-valid.

pubesy, i assure you, i am judging based on the entirety of the situation leading up to the situation in eclipse. what exact scene do you think i am referring to? because i've based my opinions on edward's behavior here on things that happened all the way back to the end of new moon. i'm not taking this scene as a huge example of edward's character as i've stated over and over again but i AM saying that in THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE, he was wrong. so i'm not entirely sure what you meant by that.

and i am not the only one using the word abuse kachiti. i understand that you don't like what i'm saying, but please.
I'm not going to argue with you, because we rarely see eye to eye. I'm simply asking you to find another word to use. As I stated before the word is having a negative effect on this thread.
Okay you two defenetaly don't see eye to eye cuz i have heard you two bicker back and forth for a while now and i just think that you should simmer down a little bit.... everybody here is just posting there own oppinions on things and if one of you doesn't like what the other one is doing and it really bothers you then you should take the problem up to the administators but please were all here to have a good time and just get out oppinions out there all i'm asking is for you two to be a little calmer and a little more cool headed...please for all of our sakes....

moonlit sunlight, you're right. i may not be able to control the actions of others, but i can control my own, and i apologize. as far as i was concerned, i was simply posting my opinions.

Ok ladies, it's time to let the abuse debate end. And at this point it has become a debate and not just discussion. It's ok to state your opinion and to back it up with examples and give reasons why you feel the way you do. What's not ok is trying to convince everyone that your opinion is the right one. Everyone interprets a book/situation differently based on their experiences and preferences. There aren't any right or wrong opinions. I don't expect you all to agree on whether or not Edward is abusive or if his actions constituted abuse. But I do expect you all to agree to disagree and be civil about it. Everyone has had ample opportunity to state their opinions and give reasons for their opinions so I want this thread to move on to another topic.

I agree, that whole scene was just like WOW. He was so worried about her doing for everyone else that he was willing to do away with his plans, for her...so sweet.
And she most definatly had more self-control then any female I know to tell him no ;)

Ditto-
pshht, I even think she should not have said no. The consequences would have been horrible, true, but that moment was better than Emse's Isle's moment because on the Island was expected. But in the meadow it was like "How SWEET!!! He really would do anything for her, even give up something he wanted badly, like marrage."On the Island, he HAD to keep his part of the deal-he agreed to it, and Bella already fullfilled her side. In the meadow he's giving to Bella "no strings attached".

I think what made it so sweet was like Jazziscool said, it was selfless and unexpected. I mean don't get me wrong, I'm sure he was looking forward to that moment just as much as she was but I think because he was willing to give up what he wanted so badly for her made it so much more of an "awww" moment.
