The way I would write it is that you can't reform a damaged man though. In the comics it is inferred that Sigyn has perished which is not quite sending a positive message to girls about getting involved with the wrong man. The Twilight books and movies give a worse message to girls about how it's not harmful to get involved with dangerous men like Edward Cullen.
