for the most part, i don't really mind the smell.. unless it's something strong and obvious, like steak in the broiler or a ham or other slow-cooking carcasses, i find that the smell of garlic/onion/whatever spices are used is stronger than the meat smell.
my two biggest pet peeves are poorly-washed dishes that clearly still have food on them and raw meat in the fridge or on the counter.. my mother is nice about it though, and cleans up after any gross germ-ridden meat mess on the counter or in the fridge. i could just buy/use my own pots, pans, and utensils, but i'm spoiled and love the all-clad that my mom has.. lol.. i don't like to settle for cheap things.
i don't mind sharing my food with the fam, even though i pay for it myself and it's not cheap, because i like to think they'll cut back on the meat if they see how good veg food is, and i always make more food than i can eat by myself and would rather not see it go to waste. even my stubborn omni dad, who won't eat anything that says low-fat and likes meat with practically every meal (yet still weighs only 130 lbs somehow?? i sure hope i got those genes..) loves my vegan cookies and walnut-oat scones. and my parents pay for so much of my life (car insurance, college, computer, some of my clothes and other completely unnecessary things) that paying for my own food and sharing with them is the least i can do.
