Hmmm, are Bella and Edward from the Twilight saga in an abusive relationship? One fan pointed out that their unconventional romance has almost all the warning signs of an abusive relationship as outlined by the National Domestic Violence hotline. What do you think? Read it here...

That's a very interesting take on it, Jeanette. I definitely agree that young women are often eager to throw themselves at the "handsome brooding guy" and take his abuse as a sign of their loyalty to him.

Thank you for someone else pointing this out. I read the series, and all I could think was how frightening it is that young girls think a controlling, cruel, stalking male is romantic.

Everytime I mention it to those around me I get rolled eyes and "you're reading too much into it."

Jeanette,

I have not read the series but lived it. I hope a lot of young women are not taken in by it. It leads to a lot of heartache and even a tendency to accept that kind of behavior as normal.

I have always been attracted to bad boys and have paid a heavy price for it.
