I wasn't sure the best topic area to put this question in, but hopefully this one will be sufficient. And I'm really sorry if there is already a post, or subject area for this, if there is, please let me know.

So we all know that the Cullens have a substantial amount of money; but I can't quite figure out where they get all the money from... I mean, I know Carlisle is an amazing doctor, so he gets a lot of money, and has been doing it for over 300 years, but none of the other Cullens work, and they have gone to college [perhaps multiple times] so how would they still have that much money to splurge all the time like they do? Maybe I'm stupid and am missing something obvious but it just doesn't completely makes sense to me, I guess not having to buy food makes up for some... I don't know, what do you guys think.

They really don't have to buy that much stuff. And Edward had a job I belive, so just more money. Oh and he had a inheritance from his mom. And Carlisle just racks up money from being a doctor so that is how, I think.

So in other words Carlisle is:

-Hot
-Rich
-Compassionate
-A Doctor...

What more could you want in a guy? I mean, he's the whole taco!

Going to the money topic...I wouldn't be suprised if they played around in the stock market. Living that long, being that wise...it would only make sense :wink:

I agree wholeheartedly.
Especially since Carlisle had it so rough in the beginning, after his transformation, and even right before it.
I love how he's using his "gifts" to do what he knows and feels is right; he tries very hard to do good things, and you can tell he really does see the younger Cullen kids as his real children.
I think it's also amazing how, no matter what, he always seems to know what to do, and he's always so calm, which in turn, makes everyone around him feel more at ease.
Carlisle is definitely one of my main heros; he's been through so much, and if it weren't for him, the Cullen family may never have formed and grown into what it is today.
He even loves Bella, and is willing to change her.
Ah, I love him so much; he really is the ultimate dad. (:
