I'm so happy, and really shocked! He told me when he was on his way home that he's been a vegetarian for over a week, and he told his parents who then decided to cut back on their meat for the health benefits. He's no longer eating meat because, in his words, "it's mean".<br><br>
He's never had a problem with eating veg*n meals that I make, but he's always had meat at his home, and most of the time when we go out, and I never thought he'd actually make the switch properly, especially because I never once pushed him about it. Or even asked about it. It's awesome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You must be so happy - that's probably most vegans' dream come true.

It wasn't even something I was wishing for (except the times when I wish everyone would be veg*n)... I was happy to have him eat veg at home. So yeah, I'm really pleased <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Good to hear. You know, I overheard someone explain why they are vegetarian to another person and he simply said, "because I choose not to ingest suffering."<br><br>
Yep.<br><br>
It's not why I went vegetarian at first, but it's what keeps me a vegetarian now.

I would imagine that would be a huge relief.
