Edward: "It makes me anxious to be away from you!" Bella: "Not seeing you. It makes me anxious too! Would you really want to have a life time love affair, as intense as the one Edward and Bella shared?
Introduction: At one point in the novel "Twilight" Edward tells Bella, that he did not like leaving her, even for a short while. Edward to Bella: "IT MAKES ME ANXIOUS TO BE AWAY FROM YOU !" Edward also admitted that his constant worries about her safety tended to distract him. And that he had been tormented the entire three days he had been away from her. "It was a very long three days."
Not knowing that Edward had spent most of that time, sitting in the forest next to her home, guarding her, Bella gets furious at him for not having called her. And she replies "I didn't like it either, not seeing you, IT MAKES ME NERVOUS TOO!"
Healthy bonds of love between men and women, exist with multiple degrees of intensity.
Question: Would you really want to have a life time love affair, as intense as the one Edward and Bella shared?
As always we sincerely look forward to learning your opinions about this topic.

Historic observation: There are very few intimatly documented love affairs, which existed between historic figures. To me, President Reagan's love, for his wife Nancy more closely resembles Edward's love for Bella than any other I have studied.
Reagan's intense love for "his Nancy", is well documented. Especialy in his personal diaries, and in Michael Devers biography. Dever served as assistant, friend, and personal confidante to both President Regan and Nancy for decades.
No. 1: Examples of the similarities, of Reagan and Edward's intense love include: "President Regan told me, that Nancy was every thing to him, And that until she came into his life, the "Ronald Regan" the world knew, simply didn't exist.
Similar example from "Twilight" Quote, Edward to Bella "You are my life now."
2. He, Regan never considered Nancy as being attractive, to him she was always quite literally breathtakingly beautiful."
Similar example from "Twilight" Alice to Edward "Look at Bella now, why she is dazzlingly beautiful." Edward's response: "She always has been."
3. Dever: There would be these huge social events and occasionally she (Nancy) would run late. But as soon as he saw her walk into the room he (President Reagan) would simply light up like a Christmas tree.
Similar example from "Twilight" Edward to Bella: " It was you that unfroze my heart. You that brought me back to life!"
4. We were in Reykjavík Iceland, Regan had made a commitment to place nuclear weapons in Western Europe. And The Communists were furious, because if he did, it meant that their dream of politically enslaving the rest of Europe could never be obtained. And they were anoid at having been kept waiting for over an hour to get Reagan's reply to one of their ultimatums.
We all sat looking at him (Reagan) guessing what he would do. But he could not decide how to respond. He just wasn't acting like himself. Then the head of the American Secrete Service walked in and said that he had just received a somewhat cryptic message, from the White House. "Read it out loud." The President said.
He read. "Tell Rawhide, that Princess, is fine." Dever said a smile crossed the president's face, his eyes started to twinkle, and in a voice as firm as steel, he said " Ladie's and Gentlemen let's go to work. It's time we explained the facts of life to the Soviets." As we walked toward the door he said. "I get anxious when I am away from her."
Similar example from "Twilight" Quote: Edward to Bella: "It makes me anxious to be away from you.
Example 5: Prime Minister Thatcher, President Reagan, and Pope John Paul had made a commitment to each other to free the peoples of Eastern Europe from Communism.
With their goal of winning finaly in sight Reagan invited Mikhail Gorbachev, to Washington. But then someone from the Soviet KGB, leaked to the CIA, that they were planning on having Gorbechoff assasinated on American soil. Which could end Thatcher, Reagan, and Paul's dream. The KGB had already had their Bulgarian service shoot Pope John Paul. Regan immediatly cancelled Gorbachev's visit.
Dever told Casey (who was the head of the CIA) we are going to win now, there is simply no way the Communists can stop us. Casey said there is still one way, "Kill Nancy" and you kill the "MAN." BUT there is only one thing holding them back. And that is the fear that if they killed her, within six hours nothing, would still be alive in the entire Soviet Union. "They wouldn't, He wouldn't ?!?! Casey just shruged his shoulders as if to say "Who knows."
Similar example from "Twilight" Edward, in reference to Lonnie (Bella's attepted molester) "I have a problem with my temper. And "I could not live in a world in which you didn't exist.
