Actually, Wendy, my husband and I lived in Boise, Idaho, with its own sizable Mormon community, where my husband worked for an LDS-owned company, with a majority of fellow LDS employees. Our two nieces are young LDS women, living in Mesa, Arizona, another sizable Mormon community. I know of what I speak. I absolutely see no correlation between the Twilight Saga fan base and women having married too young, pining for their youth. Very confusing parallel.
Can you think of any other reason for 35 year old women to swoon over what is supposed to be a 17 year old boy? If the sexes were swapped we'd find it creepy. I find it creepy as it is.
Well, yeah. The actors are smoking hot. LOL.
This issue crosses both sexes. 16 year old Miley Cyrus graces every magazine cover and advertisement in all sorts of undress, and I don't see anyone trying to link that to men marrying too young.
