    How do Vegetarians handle living with a meat eater?

    My wife started a plant based diet with me then abandoned the idea and began eating pretty much everything again. Im sticking to it. So I do 99% of the cooking in the house, just me and her. She does not eat my food unless she is starving, then turns around and orders buffalo wings from Pizza Hut. Im sure to day she will come home with some Popeyes chicken strips and make it into a chicken salad.
    I cannot say a word to her about it because she will KILL me for it. Like calling her fat or something. So I am a single married vegetarian.

    Any stories?

    all of us are meat eaters but we don't eat meats everyday, only 2x a week, the rest of the days, we are vegetarians

      I hear people say that they are oart time vegetarian. Actually I sat with my dietician and he and his family have meat on the weekends. (Respectfully) I do not understand if the meaning of vegetarian applies to this. “Mostly plant based diet”

    I would assume that most of the time their partners are respectful of their food and life choices.

    If your partner is not respectful then maybe you need to take a look at your relationship and determine if it is worth continuing.

    My parents were split that way as well. So my father would cook the meat and my mother would cook the sides that she planned to eat as her main meal and us kids would either eat what they had made or we could make ourselves a sandwich.

    Occasionally my mother would cook meat but she wouldn't eat it.

      Not worth leaving my marriage for, she can make her own food choices. But it is a divided refrigerator. Lol
