So interesting this book series was written by a Mormon. Their church of course has a long and checkered history of polygyny. The strong sexual attraction between Bella, Edward and Jacob reeks of a suggestion of polyandry, even tho Bella "has" to choose with whom to consummate the relationship. I found it rather titillating, in the context of the story, to see her physically turned on by Jacob, and loving him as a friend, while having Edward as her primary love.

I'm sure there's lot of fanfic written where Bella has both men, and they all live happily ever after!

Looks like a "V" to me!
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
