<b>How do the rest of you feel about purchasing or cooking meat products for significant others, friends, family, ect?<br><br>
Do you feel it conflicts with your morals as a vegan? Just wondering how people feel about the subject.</b>

It would be more moral to eat meat from the trash without paying for it than to give money to an industry that harms animals for profit. It's the act of giving them your money much more so than actually consuming the meat that perpetuates the slaughter culture.

My significant other and family are vegan, so BWAHAHHA.<br><br><br>
But if they weren't, I would not cook nor buy non-vegan things for them.

I used to make my husband non-veg foods. I would use the money from his (our?) account to pick up his meat or cheese. I figured he'd buy it anyway on his own if I didn't. However, I have stopped enabling, and I no longer prepare non-vegan recipes at home. I feel much better (morally) now doing this. If he wants omni food, he gets it at work or at restaurants, but at home I only cook veg food. I do still grab him some microwave dinners, which perhaps I shouldn't do. But, I don't have enough time to cook everything for him, and he'd be upset if I didn't since he doesn't have time to go shopping. So, really, I guess I do better than I used to, but maybe there's still room for improvement.

<b>Wow, not even one person said that they would do it. I suppose I understand that. My wife is an omni but I still cook her meats, granted I'm not "vegan" yet but I understand where everyone is coming from. I haven't decided where I stand on buying it, though admittedly I don't like to do so. If she purchases it with "her/our" funds I suppose I don't mind preparing it for her. x..x It's just hard to say at this point. I think she'd shrivel up and die without my cooking. Ha.</b>

Maybe a better reason to try out vegan dishes with her, all the time?

<b>Ah but I do! She loves Boca burgers and chik'n patties. And will eat other things with me also! But she's a meat eater through and through. I wouldn't change that about her. I love her and if she loves meat then that's her business. Granted, if she became vegetarian or vegan that'd be cook but either way I love her just the same.</b>

I wouldn't buy it, because I think that's wrong, and I've never prepared meat in my life, because it's gross. I also thought my husband was going to be a carnivore the rest of our days, but it was only 6 months after I went vegetarian that he told me he didn't feel right eating animals anymore, and has been vegetarian with me.<br><br>
It's great you give her that support <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> But maybe she'll come around on her own someday. Fingers crossed!

i no longer feel comfortable handling meat and probably not handling any of the other stuff either. i don't know if i'd find it to actually be going against my beliefs to buy/prepare that kind of stuff because it's hard for me to imagine at this point.

Like many others who have posted, i will not intentionally cook or buy anything that is not vegan. If some people around me wish to make an argument about such things, then fine, go for it. Although, i can understand if somebody is the only veggie or vegan in their household or social circle, then it may be diffcult to fully adhere to your principles.

If my wife wanted it, I would buy it and cook it.<br><br>
That said, my wife typically won't let me buy or cook her any meat products. She's nice like that.

I think I've said before that I wouldn't ever cook non-vegan for anyone. I take that back now! Both my parents are sick and they asked me to cook eggs for them and I did. I did let them know that it was a special favour for them since they were sick tho so they wouldn't get confused about what I will or won't do normally.

It would have to be under very special circumstances for me to prepare or buy non-vegan food. If my parents were sick or something, I might prepare something for them, but I don't think I could handle meat. I was bringing a vegetable tray to my parents' house for party over the weekend and told my mom I wouldn't be making any sour cream dip <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">. She was OK with that. I brought hummus and olive tapenade, and she made her veggie dip.
