Vegan for Love?
Saturday, March 24, 2012
This may sound odd for a blog but I needed to put it out there for some feedback. At the moment the man I am involved with is a die hard vegan, and it's for animal welfare purposes. He has been raised this way his entire life. I have not. Now when I'm with him I'm considerate and do the vegan thing but I have to say it has me thinking. If this relationship gets any more serious I'm going to need to make a decison on this. My man has not even brought the subject up to me, but he knows i'm not vegan 100% of the time.
The question that's hitting me now is do I become vegan for my love for him and his beliefs and respect? Or should I not and he should love me for who and what I am despite his beliefs and upbringing. I never ask him to compromise his lifestyle at all. And the issue really isn't the not eating meat part. I really don't eat a lot of meat but the kicker is I love dairy. Don't get me wrong I love this man with the entire depths of my soul. But the thought of never having cheese again truly makes me say hold on there. Now I am all for animal rights I dont wear leather or fur or anything made from animals in any way. I have pets i love and adore like children.
And I'm also thinking what if i'm in between, I 'm not vegan but vegetarian. That I think I could handle a bit better, at least I could still have my cheese and cheesecake and eat it too! I know either way it comes down to me having this talk with my man but please give me your input.
Would you change your entire lifestyle and diet and eating habits for the person you loved?
