Friends used to ask how we managed when it came to sharing dinner, but our story is hardly original. And as that continues to blossom, personal values around food will continue to bring people together or keep them apart. In some relationships, sharing the decision to eat strictly plant-based matters a lot less than sharing a similar worldview; in others, abstaining from meat is the worldview.
Cindy Gooden, a year-old vegan based in Los Angeles, was raised in a vegetarian household and stuck with the eating style well into her adult life. However, when she first started dating her now-fiance, Juan, meat began making its way onto her plate. Juan, whose parents immigrated to California from Mexico, grew up eating a lot of meat, Gooden said. Five years into her partnership with Juan, Gooden is now wholly vegan. So how does the couple reconcile? Not eating animals can be something as simple as a personal food preference, but rejecting animals as food can also be more indicative of a certain type of lifestyle.
If two people share diametrically Wife can t handle my meat values around eating, Cohen said, the relationship is going to be complicated. For some people, abstaining from animal products is as much of an identity as religion or deciding who to vote for.
Cohen says this is why relationships with two different kinds of eaters have the potential to be so fraught. Gooden, however, said she would never let veganism be the thing to end their relationship. But in some factions of veganism — or any impassioned kind of activism, for that matter — recruitment is just another part of the greater cause.
From this perspective, sharing a romantic relationship with a non-vegan could just be part of that work. Still, once Smiley made the switch to veganism, she insisted on some house rules. For others, navigating food values in a relationship has not ended so well. Because of this experience with my ex, I realized how important it was for me to be in a relationship with someone who likes the same food as me. Dean Moore, a year-old from outside Buffalo, New York, is in the midst of confronting what it means to be at opposite ends of the food spectrum with his wife of 31 years.
It exacerbated and flowed it up to the surface. Sharing a food philosophy could very well be an element to success in love, said Karine Charbonneau — a. Vegan Cupid — a vegan matchmaker and founder of FindVegLove.
Things might be easier in my own life if my partner ditched meat for good. He once cooked a recipe for a kimchi beef burrito he loved so much that he insisted on making the same dish a week later with fake meat so that Wife can t handle my meat could try it. While we can both agree the new faux chicken nuggets we sampled tasted awful, only he has the authority to claim they were an affront to real chicken nuggets everywhere.
