I really want to go vegan but my boyfriend threatens to break up with me if i do so. He thinks it is utter nonsense. What should i do? Is there any way that i could go vegan and keep my boyfriend too? Or i have to break up with him so i could improve my health and go vegan?
Maybe i should.
He doesn't let YOU decide what YOU eat? Thats way too much pressure one should accept.
If this was an exception and he is a really nice, kind guy beside of this stupidity he simply lacks information and might be really concerned about you and your health (but i doubt it). If so, he simply needs more kindly served information on the topic.
dump him, no doubt about it.
Someone who isn't willing to support you and consider your view points is not someone you should want to spend your life with. Even if your partner isn't vegan, it doesn't mean they can't be a good partner, but they do need to support you and your free choice to make your own decisions, especially about your health.
I say go vegan anyway. You are your own person wanting to improve your health, yet he doesn't want to be with you for making such a positive change in your life. If he breaks up for you over it, let him leave. You can find someone else who shares the same/similar values and will stay with you and be supportive regardless of being a vegan. He should be supportive of your choice. Its not like you're making him go vegan with you, you're doing it because you want to. If he doesn't leave, be vegan, lead by example and maybe he might become vegan in the long run :)
No matter what you are your own person, regardless of relationships. Do what feels right. Going vegan will be healthy for you and the animals as well as allowing you to stress the earth less. :)
umm, is this even serious?
Yup..sadly there are people who will break up with their partners for stuff like this..its very sad :(
Maybe it's good!?
At least it's an fast and easy way to spot / get rid of negative partners.
That is true as well. I just mean its sad people will give ultimatums like that over a positive lifestyle change than be supportive.
This does not sound like a supportive person, bottom line. My boyfriend has no intention of becoming a vegan (I can still try haha!) but he has not stopped me or discouraged me from doing what I want with my body. Find someone who will love you for yourself and support you in all you do, and not give you silly ultimatums about things that are always your choice, relationship or not!
