Who should Bella from the 'Twilight' franchise have ended up with?
A festive crown for the winner

It’s been 11 years since the "Twilight" movie premiered. To this day, the franchise’s love triangle among Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black remains one of the biggest disputes our nation has ever seen. Critics argue Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, chose the wrong guy. Many fans believe Edward was just a shimmering, creepy, manipulative weirdo and believe Jacob—the low-key boring, passive-aggressive, shapeshifter Bella grew up with—would have been a much better fit. What do you think?

Let’s cut right to the chase, kids—Edward is hot, rich, immortal and saved Bella's life multiple times. Not to mention he drives a Volvo! There’s no reason why Bella Swan wouldn’t choose him. From the moment he first smelled her and bolted out of the classroom, people knew it was love at first sight.

Edward may be perfect in Bella’s eyes, and may even protect her with the help of his family, but he's not perfect by any means. In fact, some would say he's a pretty terrible boyfriend, loaded with abusive tendencies.

Edward broke up with Bella in "Twilight: New Moon" and left her in a long state of depression. She sat in her room for months in agony. The only person she was able to rely on during that time was Jacob. Jacob was there for her when she flung herself off a cliff in an attempt to get Edward back (didn’t work, by the way), and he was even there for her when Laurent, an enemy of the Cullen's, tried to attack her. Can Edward say the same?

While it's true that Edward left Bella in a state of depression, it's important to note he did it out of love. What more could a girl ask for?

The self-deprecating vampire hates his roots and never wanted Bella to be impacted by his world. And as much as Edward wanted to be with Bella, he felt letting her go would be better for her in the long run.

What’s better for Bella is to keep her humanity. As we all know, she won't be able to do that if she stays with Edward. Instead, Bella would have to completely uproot her life, and that’s a lot of sacrifice for one person.

With Jacob, Bella could just live a happy, normal life without having to give up her identity. She could grow old with him, have a normal job, and wouldn’t be constantly thwarting attacks by other vampires. Danger wouldn’t be a constant concern for her, and that’s the kind of life Bella deserves!

Bella could live a perfectly normal life with Jacob, but maybe she doesn’t want to. She said it herself—she sees Jacob as a brother. She wants to be a vampire and experience everything in Edward’s world, and while some won’t agree with that decision, that’s her choice.

She may be giving up a lot by transitioning to become a vampire, but Edward has to contain his thirst for her every day. Ultimately, they both are making sacrifices for their relationship, and that's their prerogative.

Bella has a right to choose whomever she wants, but how could Bella know what’s best for her if she lacks common sense? She once tried to pepper spray a vampire, so can we say she has the chops to truly decide what’s best for her?
