Question: I have a Twilight question!?
Why does the Cullen family even bother to go to school!? I mean, they don't get along with anyone!. what is the point of trying to associate with normal teens anyway!? And wouldn't they be bored of going to school over and over again!. why do they bother!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
It seems pointless to me too!. They could just pretend to be homeschooled and do whatever they like!. They have the funds and the intelligence to do anything!. And like I sort of get that they do it because they'd get bored at home, but they claim to be bored at school too!. A bit silly!. I think they should get jobs!. Edward could be a composer!. They are a bit odd could hide away from the world so it doesn't hurt his creativity or something!. And Rosalie could be a mechanic!.

I think it's silly they go to school!.
But if they didn't then they wouldn't have met Bella and the story wouldn't have ever really started!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Three reasons come to mind:
1) The book was supposed to be aimed at school aged teens, so it's set in a setting they can relate to!.
2) If there's a school aged kid in any town long enough and wandering around during the school hours, some busy body Mrs!.Grundy type is sure to put a call to social services, the cops, etc!.!.!.!.!.
3) Easy way to pick out victims!. After all, school is a quick way to point out who's high profile locally and who's barely noticed (e!.g!. unlikely to be noticed if missed, etc)!. also, easy access to everyone's address, phone number, habits, etc!. through the grapevine!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

they don't have anything else to do!. and they can be more resistant to human blood by being near them!. !?!?!?!?!? i dunno, ask Stephanie Meyer, i dunno why she even made em go to skool, anyway i bet even she doesn't know the answer, she just needed her beloved edward and bella to meet somehow!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

No, I don' see the point in this either!. I mean they are all old enough to look as if they have finished high school, ( which they already have several times) so why bother going to school!?
I know people would wonder about their age, but still, it does seem rather pointless!.Www@QuestionHome@Com


Why do any of them do anything like that!?

No real reason other than "they do"

!. !. !. realy great bunch of characters!. Of course you could always argue that they do it to try to fit in to society!. !. !. now why they would really want to do that is totally up to you to determine!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

lol good point, i think its so they look more normal, even thought the kids end up alienated and pretty much hang out with each other, at least they go to school!. If they were home schooled that would just make them seem even weirder!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

They go to school so they can appear to be younger!. The younger they start off in a new town the longer they can stay there!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The younger they start out in a town, the longer they can stay!.!.and if they say they're highschool age, then they legally have to go to school!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It makes them seem younger, and the younger you appear to be the longer you can stay in one town,Www@QuestionHome@Com
