over a year ago:
I disagree with both you guys.
Stephenie Meyer has stated that from the begining of the novels (when she started to write sequels to Twilight, for example, 'Forever Dawn') that Jacob was always set to imprint on Renesmee. He did not radomnly get Renesmee, because he never got Bella. And I don't personally believe that he only loved Bella because he was set to love her daughter. Their relationship was not originally supposed to get as close as it did, but with the 2nd an 3rd book, Jacob and Bells became real close.
I also believe that one can fall in love with anyone because that's just how life is, and they /were/ human.
Now, we can agree that they are not, and their bonds between Jacob and Bells and each of their soulmates (Ness, and Edward) is stronger than any other bond they've had.
