Girl has life, girl meets boy and life becomes only about boy, sex is a temptation but it's wrong because Jesus says so, young marriage, sex (but described only briefly if at all) that is so amazing because they waited, baby, perfect life. Oh, and half the time the woman doesn't know what she wants until the man is there to show her that it's marriage and babies.
Sound familiar? I'd heretofore neglected to fold the fact that Bella's life shapes itself around Edward into the Grand Religious Theory of Twilight. So thanks for that! Yesterday in the comments Kim also wrote this:
This scene and the sex jokes in some of the chapters remind me of a couple of weddings I've been to where the couple were both religious virgins and everyone at the wedding knew because their families kept making awkward jokes and references to it and how they were finally going to do it later that night.
Which will be sufficient nightmare fuel for this evening, I think. So also thanks for that.
