Vegetarian/veganism is rising in popularity as more people choose the lifestyle for environmental or animal rights concerns. Meat eaters always want to know where vegans get protein, and vegans retaliate with moral superiority leading to a tension-riddled relationship.
On a popular Reddit thread on the Am I the A**hole Subreddit, a woman decides to go vegetarian, and her husband has some notes.
Hey, I'm 29 my husband is 34. We have a 5-month-old daughter. I have decided I want to become a veggie mainly for environmental reasons. I've been considering doing this for some time, as meat production has a hugely negative effect. Having our daughter has made me a bit more eco-conscious as I am afraid of the future world she'll live in.
I've been trying to reduce the meat in my diet for some time. My husband doesn't want to do this and complains whenever I cook a meatless meal. I am a SAHM and cook almost all of our meals. I've told him I don't want to cook meat anymore and that if he wants to eat it, he can cook it himself and that he is lucky I am cooking for him every day, whatever I cook.
