- twilightdreamteam, dedicated to the dream cast and book atmosphere of the twilight series.
and if you want to follow me on my personal blog, here it is.

I don’t think they’d go through a similar fate because Frank was not at all like Jack. Frank wanted security and stability, he was simply that kind of person.. but Jack didn’t care for that because he was the tumbleweed blowing in the wind, the dreamer artist type. He would have gone anywhere life would have taken him and wouldn’t have alienated Rose at all. The moment he would feel Rose is suffocating in her lifestyle, he would do anything to make her feel better. If she wanted to take that plane and move to Paris, he’d be the first to leave everything behind and go. Jack was the kind of guy who had nothing to lose because he knows how it is to live off a few blank sheets of paper and nothing more. Unlike Frank, he wouldn’t be afraid of “losing it all”. Jack valued Rose’s opinions and dreams above all, and i’m sure he would have done anything to make her happy. She came first, before security and social expectations (which i’m sure Jack would give less than a damn about).
I got this same exact question (but about Romeo & Juliet instead) over a month ago on my Romeo & Juliet blog. So I’m going to basically tell you the same thing: I don’t have a boyfriend so I don’t have to worry about his
sorry ass opinion. However, if he would have a problem with this movie it’s not going to sit well with me lol. I’m not saying he has to worship it as I do, but at least have a good amount of respect for the tragedy itself and for the message the movie was trying to convey through Jack and Rose. But unless my potential next boyfriend literally has no soul, I don’t think that should be a problem lol
Just a sidenote; luckily enough, everyone I’ve ever encountered in my life has always had a good opinion about Titanic. They don’t treat it as a “chick flick” due to the historical tragedy that very much happened. There’s nothing to sneer at, here. Jack and Rose may have been fictional, but there were very real people on that ship 102 years ago who lost their loves ones and that alone is worthy of respect. Even my family who aren’t fanatic about this film (and I have made them overdose it over the years lol) still have a huge amount of respect for the tragedy and for James Cameron’s film.
I don’t think James Cameron ever specified when/how they met, but I speculate it must have been sometime after Rose’s cotillion/débutante ball the year before (which is thrown specifically to introduce a young woman as eligible to marry) so she must haven’t known Cal for very long tbh.
They were at the brink of bankruptcy. In such a moment of crisis, they had to act fast before it was too late and no one of high rank would ask for Rose’s hand anymore. So I assume they picked the most convenient (aka. richest) suitor in the bunch at that particular time and Cal was it. It didn’t matter if the man they would have picked for Rose was nice or cruel. More often than not, marriage in that social class was not based on love at all but on financial security. Love was more regarded as a frivolous luxury than anything else.
“We have a sort of language of our own, like a private secret language or something, and i was surprised at how present that was within our relationship, and it was just great to have the history that we have and the chemistry that we have, and being able to play these two characters, because there were no boundaries at all. we could do anything, try anything — never felt stupid. we feel so comfortable with each other and i know that…i would let leo physically harm me if it meant that he had to do something for a scene, and i know that he would feel the same way. it is a very rare friendship that we have.” - Kate Winslet
