The Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart rumor mill keeps on churnin' out updates on the couples' rumored reunion! The latest: Apparently, a "source" says Rob has told Kristen that the only way he can forgive her for the affair is if she "truly commits to him." As in, she marries him. Yup, "he is desperate to make it work and wants to give her another chance but not unless she proves she really wants it too." Ouch. And getting hitched is the only way to do that, I guess?
Well, I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone dropped the "M" word again. After all, just before news of the affair broke, we were surmising what a Robsten wedding might look like! But that feels like it was many, many moons ago. This post-affair world is a whole different, far less frilly and innocent ballgame. Still, how utterly unromantic is it that Rob might be issuing an ultimatum?!
When I was waiting for my now-fiance, then-boyfriend to pop the question, some people definitely advised that I give him an ultimatum. But that was pretty much the last thing I wanted to do. Who wants to get engaged knowing that perhaps the only reason your partner is saying "I do" is because you threatened to leave? Doesn't exactly seem like the healthiest way to begin a new chapter of your relationship.

Then again, if this is true, if Kristen truly betrayed his trust, I could see why Rob may need more than just an apology and a promise never to do it again. He wants a ring on it, and maybe he feels like that may be the only way to take their relationship to the next level and, well, prevent another incident of infidelity. But remember when Aidan tried to do that to prevent Carrie from straying with Big again?? Can you say backfire?!
If the rumors are true, perhaps the best thing for these two would be to commit ... to couples' therapy! Seems like that might be a much healthier, far less extreme and risky way to rebuild trust than getting engaged. Not to mention that it's a must-do before walking down the aisle!
Do you think these two should get engaged anytime soon? How do you feel about ultimatums?
