The key relationship is between Edward and Bella. At first it is based on a curiousity between the two - Edward can't read Bella's mind, which disturbs him, and Bella feels Edward dislikes her for no reason, which angers her. As the book progesses, it develops into a love relationship, in which Edward is very proctective of Bella and Bella is very eager to become a permanent part of Edward's world. Obviously there are complication along the way, but this is the central relationship driving the action of the book and movie.
