Hi Wildflowerliz, good for you, having support from the whole family to live a vegan lifestyle (even if only when Grandma doesn't cook bacon!) I can emphasize - I have a 5-year-old as well and a very supportive husband. Although we agreed not to make the whole family vegan, I am all-out vegan now and the family has drastically lowered consumption of animal products. When I talk to my little boy about animals, he agrees that he doesn't want to eat them; however, later in the day, he will demand 'meat' and when he is hungry, there is no reasoning with him. I think that, at such a young age, it is hard to expect such a drastic change to catch on right away (And we're talking about a crazy empathetic little guy here, he gets sad about broken trees, bugs who lost their mommy, etc. Still, it hasn't completely 'clicked' for meat. One day, it will.) As for your fiancé, you are right, he is a grown man and can make his own decisions. Just remember that you've got it really good and your family is trying, even if they slip up now and then. The change is harder for some people than others, so try not to stress too much. Best of luck!
