well I figure if you want to keep this relationship going there needs to be a way to deal with it. I think you are clear about not eating, preparing or shopping for any meat products. I think this is as far as you can go as you need to respect his way of eating too.
My partner started off as omni but I only cooked vegan so that is what he ate. He tops things with cheese sometimes and eats cookies or snacks with butter in them, but bit by bit he has given up the meat. I never pressure him at all. That wouldn\t be fair. But he has been exposed to some of those same movies and ideas and he is moving away from meat.
He can still eat meat. Hell, we can even buy a toy train if he wants. His life is still his own and if he wants meat that is okay with me. But I see him changing. Make fabulous vegan food that is way better than his food, don't force anything on him and see if he comes round to our way of thinking.
Give it time. Good luck.
Hi, We are in similar positions. I too gave up animal products overnight a few weeks go after watching those same docs on Netflix. I have been with my husband over half my life and we have 2 small kids. In a perfect world I wish I could say no more animal products in the house but that isn't fair. I mostly prepare Vegan meals and a few nights a week I will prepare meat on the side for them. To be honest giving up animal products has not been hard for me at all-finding meals my whole family will eat has been the worst!! I still fail most nights of the week where I am the only one eating the dinner I prepared. I am stubborn though and will keep at it, I just wish my husband would be a little more open to trying the new meals, not taking one bite and leaving the table to make a cold cut sandwich. He watches TV non-stop but there is no way I can get him to watch those documentaries!
All well, like I said I am stubborn and will keep trying. I have no problem with him eating meat, but I want him to eat the vegan meals too.
Best of luck to us both!
