There are probably several reasons for why they ultimately wound up calling it quits, but now it looks like there's a chance that Kristen Stewart pressuring Robert Pattinson to get engaged, settle down, have a family, and all that good stuff may have been the straw that broke the camel's back.
According to a report in OK! Magazine, "Kristen wanted to go straight back to where they’d been before they first split up and pushed Rob really hard on it. She wanted the whole package: the house, the wedding, and even the baby. It was all way too much for Rob to handle."
Well, duh. Of course it was. And if there's any truth to this story, it's no wonder he packed his stuff, moved out of Kristen's home, and went running for the border (of Los Feliz, California).
Ok, let's just go ahead and state the obvious -- this report was put out by a gossip magazine, so we can't really know for sure if what this source says is true or not.
But would you really be all that surprised to hear that Kristen did everything in her power to make sure Rob didn't slip out of her clutches ever again? I mean, it's kind of a wonder that he was willing to take her back in the first place after she was caught red-handed in a lip-lock with Rupert Sanders.
And after he did, Kristen must have been shaking in her boots the entire time waiting for the ball to drop. I'm sure she was scared to death that he'd eventually wise up and have a change of heart, so it would make total sense for her to try and get a ring on her finger to ensure a commitment as soon as possible. And if marriage wouldn't have locked him down -- odds are good that a baby would've gotten rid of any notion he may have had of leaving her again.
Because if she got knocked up and he ran for the hills, he'd look like a real jerk. Then he'd be the bad guy responsible for the failure of their relationship -- not her.
But if this really was Kristen's little plan all along, obviously it backfired miserably. Maybe if she'd just let things take a natural course, she and Rob would've finally gotten their happy ending. (And if nothing else, they would've made Twihards happy.)
Do you think Kristen was pushing for marriage and kids?
