Twilight: does it really affects people's relationships? NOT really!!

Yes, we opened our computers early in the morning looking for new RPatzz and Taylor photos, checking out more sites for any twilight-related news... at the end of the day, some of us sometimes come home, grinning ear-to-ear, bringing new Twilight loot for our special Twilight section/room in our house...

Okay, some may have gone overboard while some are what we call "twilight closet people" (if there's a thing like closet gays for boys), but the issue of Twilight affecting our relationships with others???? That's just so.... Well, after reading this post from Movietalk, I can't help but say "I really don't thinks so.." and "It depends to some people..." This has been a long-running issue after Twilight came out, but, what's your say to this?

Yahoo Movietalk - With fans turning the area outside the Nokia theater in LA into a tent city of the Eclipse premiere, the Los Angeles Times examines the phenomenon of fans whose lives are upended by their fierce love of the vampire books and movies. The Times found women who have nearly lost their marriages by neglecting their husbands in favor of "Twilight" fan sites, blogs, and message boards. One woman gushes that she's seen the movies "over 300 times."

Twilight addiction proliferates on the internet,where a fan can take any of hundreds of quizzes to self-diagnose their condition, and websites sell hand-made crystal-encrusted T-shirts that say "Twilight Mom." Some "twi-mons" as they're known, have even argued that their love of Edward and/or Jacob has actually imporved their marriages.

"If there is a chemical that's released when you're falling in love, your brain has it when you're reading or watching 'Twilight.' You get that utopic feeling of first love and you want to experience it over and over again," one 50-year-old former engineer who has experienced her own "Twilight"-related marital problems, said. The names "Bella," "Jacob," and "Cullen" are climbing the popular-baby-name lists every year as more and more parents make their "Twilight" fandom a permanent part of their families.

While the phenomenon of life-altering "Twilight" obsession is mostly confined to women and girls, the Internet reveals that even some men are falling victim to the vampire love triangle. "How do I go about combating my husband's 'Twilight' addiction?" reads one desperate plea on Yahoo! Answers. "He even has a Team Edward sparkly shirt."

It seems that the super-fandom known as "Twilight addiction" always reaches a fever pitch, at least in the media, right before a new movie in the franchise is released. With New Moon, we learned that "Twilight" mania wasn't just for teen girls, but their moms as well. With "Eclipse," we're seeing grown-up married men afflicted by the obsession.

For me, it doesn't change anything at all... my husband supports my Twi-obsession... :D

I really don't like yahoo using this article with a sensational title & tying it to the Eclipse premiere. What I especially don't like is them using mine & my friends pic (the one with her kissing the giant Rob head) & associating it with this article abt TW ruining people's marriages. I am married but my friend who's kissing the big Rob head isn't. I just feel it paints us in a bad light & I especially tried to not do crazy things at the premiere this year.

@Kim that really is rude of them to post pics in such manner.. I, too, find it rude and tasteless the way the article is written like us, the twi moms, are somewhat sick in the head... they could at least do some justice at the end of the article... just like the one i've read years ago, over older women or married women's obsession watching teen drama Dawson's Creek - i mean, it was written well and puts them in a good light, in a way.

so far, what we have is GOOD obsession. nobody has the right to to assume that since we are addicted to this series, we neglected our family duties... on the contrary, it bonds the family, make the marriage more sweeter (as we're actually inspired) and been a topic for good-old natured conversation over the table, and people won't find hard to get us gifts... lol

I will come out and tell you guys that I was interviewed for this newspaper and was so disgusted how they portrayed me. It really pissed me off! I have learned my lesson this time around and I will definitely be hiding my face the next time....I read it and just wanted to cry. But I really don't care cause my husband understands, he loves Janet Jackson.....oh well, live and learn.....

you know...they really can't handle this. Twilight is such a wonderful thing, it really is. I mean...look at what has been created because of it. It most CERTAINLY has brought people together. This is a bunch of s***. This is just a little needle trying to break the bubble. But the bubble is just too powerful.

I'll be very honest right now. I read all four books to my mom (yes, read them to her aloud), and we've grown closer over this story. It's the truth. We have been able to connect on a much different level. Twilight really does bring people together. I don't care what the world says. The world is hateful and they just want to hurt good things.
