Planning for the future with a non-veg
I am in a serious relationship with someone who is non-vegetarian. I love him to death and things are starting to move forward with us. We just bought a house together and we are planning to get married and have children in the future.
In my ideal situation, I would raise my children vegan, or at least vegetarian. He, on the other hand, is respectful of my decision to be vegan myself, but is unsure of raising children that way. We were both raised in a rural area where vegetarianism is nearly non-existent. In fact, he grew up on a farm.
I have read Erin Pavlina's book (Raising Vegan Children...), but the advice in that book is generally for parents that are in agreement that the children should be raised strictly vegan. That's not our case. My boyfriend is open-minded, but I don't think he's completely comfortable with raising them veg.
Has anyone else been in this situation? Do you have advice on what we could do? I want to find a healthy compromise that will be beneficial to our children and, at the same time, won't make either parent look like the bad guy.
