Those women are wacko, living in an evil fantasy world. I've never understood how anyone can be turned on by a "relationship" with an (imaginary, I add) vampire or werewolf.
That's the worst part about Twilight. It borders on beastiality; it's simply abnormal from the get-go.
What is the article Title? I can't find the article from the link but would like to read it.
Will check back here soon.
It is a Mormon site! Take that in consideration when you read it, MB!
Doesn't matter to me that it's a Mormon site, Randy - but thx for the head's up...
An article is an article to me... lol I will try to read it "critically" and just see what the heck is being presented.
From some other reactions already in the thread, it seems some people weren't all that impressed with the article - I gotta read it NOW lol

The Twilight Obsession and Its Effect on Marriages
Thanks for the link...
I dunno, the movie doesn't seem to be the problem, really.
Actually - I think there's something wrong with our socially constructed ideas about what marriage is or is not. This came to mind MOST for me while reading the article.
I never watched it. So, my marriage is unaffected.....(by twilight.) I read like, three sentences into the story. My thinking is the show did nothing to any already dead marriage. If any person is putting more into a tv program than thier real life, there is a reason way above and beyond a television program.
I think if anyone allows a book or movie to affect their marriage in devastating ways, something must have already been wrong from the start.
If there is no pre existing problem with a marriage, and then the two watch twilight and split up after because of it...then something is definitely wrong there.
I just don't see why people let movies and media really affect their lives in ways like that
i cant find the articcle that ur talking about i followed the link but did find that article i found another one where a mother went a viewed the eclipse film before allowing her daughter to go see it saying that the film missed out the importance of edward not sleeping with bella till after marriage that the film made it seem like he would do it if it werent for the fact h e mite hut or kill her as the book defines it more to do with his morals from the era that edward came from!
No effect on marriage. The movie is fake and marriage is something real between a couple.
this is so dumb. i love the twilight series, but after watching twilight, i dont look over at spencer and feel dissapointed because hes not an exciting vampire. I think women just get upset that their relationship isnt exciting, and watching a movie with two people who have that "got to have you right now or ill go nutz" thing going, just adds salt to their wounds. Its not the movie, its the problem thats already in the relationship.
Measuring ones marriage on a movie? people do that? lol. It's a movie..not real life
I'm married and I've read the Twilight books.
On the one hand romance novels and chick flicks can spice up marriages- fantasy does more for women than men.
On the other hand, otherworldly and extremely unrealistic, romance themes can damage a marriage with unrealistic views and expectations of "true love". A regular marriage will never measur up. It's like a man only viewing pics of beautiful women and having that expectation of his wife to look got all the time too- unrealistic.
And still another perspective is anything that becomes an obsession like these Twilight fans (Twi-hards)is unhealthy. If it is taking time away from their husbands and family, then it's certainly not helping.
Personally, I read the books and was temporarily addicted to the point I was reading them so much my husband was wondering when he would see me again. But once I was done with the books, I was done.
Eh, I'm much more concerned about all the teen and preteen girls who now think that a guy who sneaks into your room at night while you're sleeping and sabotages your car so you can't visit your friends against his wishes is the most romantic hero ever.
If a crush on a fictional character develops to the point that it interferes with someone's marriage, that means there's something wrong with the marriage, not something wrong with the book!
In this case dear, I would say, it is about the time pornography get it's competitor, so everything can come in vise versa. if boys more drawn to porn so the girls can seek savior in twilight as payback.
But I don't think this kind of addiction will stay for long. They will find another hero to love soon.
I am Twilight's fan too, but I am all right. I'm not looking for vampire to love, but I will not refuse the chance to be love as much as Edward loves Bella. And why not? But of course, It just a movie and in real life, I know love can be really challenging to keep without any effort. Like my dear one told me,Love is action! It might be free, but it will die if you do not feed it well.
Twilight moms really need to be check on their head.
Anyone who would let twilight affect their marriage would have had another reason for a failed marriage had twilight not come along.
I'm not impressed with the Twilight Saga, but I do find it sad that so many married people do not believe in "true love". He needn't be a vampire, but didn't you choose a hero as your marriage partner? Isn't the love you share with him different from anything you could ever share with another? Then why not believe in "true love"?
Something to ask oneself is: if I'd never met him, would I have ended up with someone else? If the answer is "no" then you have true love.

Everyday I come across women who think they're more than the anticipated body figures - they call themselves fat, chubby and everything else that's round.When I talk to these women I also feel that they are not really comfortable in choosing the clothes that are too skinny for their body shapes, or...

And that's what this is - strictly my opinion and everyone has the right to agree or disagree. I wouldn't take offense because we all feel strongly in our beliefs.Here's the deal. First of all, I'm a female. After 57 years of living, I've decided that monogamy isn't natural for the man. Male brains...

If my order is incorrect, is it wrong to go back and ask for it to be corrected?Sometimes I feel that they will do something to my food, which is why I don't do this very often. What do you think?

Remember the passionate fighting between fans and anti-fans of the book-turned-movie, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'? Well, 'Fifty Shades Darker' is now being filmed - and there is still one more movie after this, 'Fifty Shades Freed'. The problem with these books is that they ARE written harmfully and...
