My So, she believes in my lifestlye choices, and she understands my views on animal rights, and on some level, I know she wan't to be vegan too, it is just that she dosen't have the inner strenght right now to do it. she has the same problem with cigs. I cook both our meals, she is a school teacher, and works ten hour days, I work at a health co-op and have a bliss-ful 8 hour day, so I took upon myself the cooking and the housework, she also goes to college too. I do the cooking, because I want her to eat healthy which she would not do if she had to cook too. I cook meat, and I put my personal feelings aside for her because she is my best friend and I love her, I would not do this for anyone else. We have been together for over 7 years, so it can work. sometimes, if you can do it, you take care of someone elses needs, and find your slef through it all.
