The Twilight Saga was written for pure fantasy and enjoyment

Someone told me that they didn’t like Twilight Saga, because the books have a bad moral of “girls can tame a savage beast or girls change can change a monster”. Another person said that the moral of Twilight was that true love conquers all.
I don’t think the Twilight Saga had a moral to it, I think Twilight series was written for pure fantasy and enjoyment. Twilight is similar to a story about someone who lives in a land made entirely of candy. A story about someone living in candy land wasn’t written for morals, it was written so people could salivate about candy for 320 pages.
Here are the following reasons why I think the Twilight Saga was written for pure fantasy and enjoyment.
1. Vampires shine like diamonds in the sunlight.
That is pure fantasy. Vampires burn in the sunlight. They are creatures of the night, not creatures that blend in well at a jewelry store.
2. Edward and Bella have a baby, even though vampires can’t have kids.
In the Twilight books it is rare, but some vampires have powers including: mind reading, tracking, or lie detection. In Edwards’s case, his power was determined to be incubus fertilization, or the ability to have kids. That is a women’s fantasy, you are in love with a man who can’t have a kid, and just by pure luck and chance he is able to get one through.
3. When Bella was pregnant in Breaking Dawn she was pregnant for about a month.
Many women don’t look forward to pregnancy because of: the gas, bloating, maternity clothes, and morning sickness. The idea of a women being able to go through a one month pregnancy instead of a nine month pregnancy before giving birth to a healthy baby is every women’s fantasy.
