Team Edward

Edward Cullen shows Bella Swan how it feels to be properly treated in a relationship, which is why he has always been the right choice for Bella. Edward respects the choices that Bella makes, even if he does not fully agree with them. He never pushes Bella to make any specific choice, but he does look out for her well-being. For example, in Eclipse, Edward knew that he could not keep Bella warm in the freezing weather. Therefore, he did not refute the fact that Jacob had to keep her warm because it was for her wellbeing.

Edward allows Bella to make her own decisions. So, blaming Edward for her decision to be a vampire would be absurd after watching several instances in the Twilight series of him warning Bella about the consequences of her decision. Edward tells Bella in Eclipse, “I know the consequences of the choice you’re making. I’ve lived through it, and to let you suffer that just for the sake of never having to lose you, it’s the most selfish thing I’ll ever do.” 

Edward proves to be the best choice as he advances Jacob in maturity. Jacob’s immaturity urges him to push the boundaries as he constantly tries to force a spark between him and Bella when she repeatedly makes it clear that she loves Edward.
