There are many issues in our time that divide our nation and communities, splitting us into bitter factions seemingly to be constantly at war. The potential for involvement in actual war, the future of health care, and the presidential election all come to mind. Also? Twilight.
All jokes aside, with the final film in the series hitting theaters tomorrow at midnight, we thought we'd indulge ourselves with a little in-depth discussion of the age-old question: Team Edward or Team Jacob? While it's easy to laugh at the whole thing (and believe us, we do), the truth is that the two male characters represent two very differing ideals in both the films and in the novel. The entire saga is packed with symbolism and (not-so) hidden meanings about sex, love, and morality — and Edward and Jacob are no exception. So, we called upon two of our editors to duke it out, no-holds barred, and ahead, they do their best to convince you of the merits of their larger arguments about what healthy relationships should look like.
Read ahead and then report back: Which side are you on? Fight for your team (or deride the whole thing) in the comments.
