The point is, Meyer preaches abstinence in her Saga. The Cullen family abstain from human blood. Edward won't have sex with Bella (even though she wants too) until they are married.
One of the things I find interesting is we don't know if Bella or Edward are virgins. It's just seem to be assumed. Secondly people who get engaged or married in Twilight seem to come to really bad ends. Bella's parents are divorced. Esme's first husband abuses her (and she never divorced him). Rosalie gets raped by her fiance. As for Bella, I can't believe Stephanie Meyer could treat a character so horribly.

Teen girls are, for the most part, smarter than this.
I wish that was true, but the epidemic in physical and sexual abuse among young teenagers, teen pregnancies, cutting, anorexia, bulimia, binge drinking and suicides seems to argue against that claim.
