hmm..took me a long time to decide. and i voted for no. he cant fully understand cos he wasnt there. and he cant get into her head. i think he knows about as well as jake, probably a little more because heknows Bella in a different way.
i dont think that matters much though, not really. it would only hurt him even more if he knew more.

Bella at least, held on to some humanity and still went on for Charlie, and her grades, Edward just shriveled up, and gave up living. If anyone read "Rosalie's News" (The phone call where Rosalie told Edward that Bella had died), he described how bad he was, just lying there, taking life a day at a time. I think Edward did (and still does) understand Bella's pain, he went through some too!
but remember, edward could have easily come back whenever he felt like it, he knew bella would take him back.

but imagine if charlie wasn't there........

i think bella would have broke down worse than edward because she truely thought her soulmate did not love her anymore.

where edward at least knew that bella would always love him and would take him back.

i think edward went through lots of pain, don't get me wrong, but it was self inflicted. i don't think he understands the pain bella went through.

but, then again you can say the same for bella.
Actually, Edward had no idea how much pain Bella was in. He though she would move on, and he thought she HAD moved on. Even when he was in pain. So ultimately, he didn't realize how broken she was until he came back and heard about it from Charlie and heard the thoughts of Jacob, the pack, and her friends. Once he realized that Bella wanted him back, I think he could compare her pain to his more. But, in the same way that Bella and Edward each think that they love the other more, I think they both think that they were in more PAIN than the other. Ugh. They're confusing, those two.

Oh geez. I think Bella needs to learn to keep her hands to herself around mythic creatures, that only seems to get her in trouble.

She'd split the bat in half. Emmett would get a good laugh out of it at least. :)

I agree. First of all, I think that Edward would be pretty good at sensing just HOW much it hurt Bella for two reasons 1. He knows bella very well and can often sense her emotions and 2. Edward knows how much Bella loves him and he knows how much it hurt him when he left. Also, there the whole case with being able to read noth Jacob's thoughts AND Charlie's because sureley Charlie would be thinking about what happened when Edward left, since Charlie dislikes Edward so much. Also, keep in mind that Charlie told Alice, and Alice might think that Edward should know if he doesn't already.

Well I think he doesn. In the book he seems so reasonable and sensible, and he look like he understans her completely, or at least that's what he says... I mean in some situations I think that it was really impossible for the real people (who are not book charachters) to react like that.. but on the other side, knowing how much he loves her.. everythin's possible..
So I gave my vote to 'yes' :)

do you think he fully understands all the pain he caused?

I think he does understand bellas pain. that is way he tells her that he is not going to make her pick between them. he knew that it was killing her. The only reason he really didn't act on it and end it with her is because he understood what happened to her when he left her. he not only heard it from her but he saw it in alices and jakes thoughts. so i think he understands her hurt and he just didn't know what to do. one way or another it would hurt her so he wanted her to work it out. that is why he was so understanding in the end about her seeing jake and about her kissing jacob and telling him that she loves him. the day after bella cried all night for jake, ewdard asked her if she made the right choice. he knew that the choices she made where hard. he even said that you love him and that is becuase he saved you when i left you. those wonds don't heal. he knew that she was hurting and all he wanted to do was help her. I think he totally understood how much pain she was in. he knows that bella may of forgeven him but the hurt will alwasy be there and that is something he is just going to have to deal with and help bella understand that he will never leave her again unless she wants him to.
I was already past trying to live through one week at a time, or even on day. I was fighting to make it through a single hour. It was only a matter of time - and not much of it- before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back. I'd be happy to beg now, if you'd like that.

I think Edward definitely understands. They both love each other so much and I think he went through the same kind of pain. Maybe they endured the pain in different ways. Maybe Edward didn't understand what happened to Bella, but I think he does.
And somewhere, far, far away in the cold forest, a wolf howled.

WARNING!!!! ECLIPSE MATERIAL!!!!!! IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ECLIPSE AND DON'T WANT TO READ SOMETHING THAT MIGHT SPOIL SOMETHING DO NOT READ!!!!!!


I also just rememberd another reason that I think proves Edward understands. In Eclipse, when Bell and Edward are talking about the big fight, and Bella asks him to stay, and he agrees. Later when he's talking to Jacob, Jacob says that he'd never ever do that. And Edward says that he's only doing it because Bella reminds him of what it did to her when he left before, and he says that he'll never forgive himself for that. Which brings me to one of my fave quotes... the quote is umm... *pages through Eclipse again and again* I can't find it so I'll have to try to do it from memory. Okay... I think it's "I know my limits. It was so horrible that last time and I just can't stand it if you leave again" I think at least the last part is right.. I'll post again if I can find the actual quote...
