“I would love to headline something, ’cause then I don’t have to share the catering with meat eaters. I love working with other bands, and I certainly don’t mind supporting another band. I don’t have to be the headliner; that’s never been an issue for me at all. I’m just more concerned about sharing the catering.”

Chrissie Hynde tells all about her meat-eaters dilemma. Are you a veggie who has a meat-eating spouse, roommate, or partner with whom you must share omnivorous sustenance? Chime in and tell us how you deal with it. Perhaps we can give Chrissie some tips!

    I am a vegetarian and my wife is not… we get along just fine. Usually we cook and she adds meat into her dish while I put tofu or extra veggies into mine.

    Hey Stephen, that’s my exact situation right now. My husband and I get along very well but as close as we get to starting a family… I feel some tension building up. He believes that since I am the ONLY vegetarian in both families (not even in the extended families there’s a vegetarian) our children should be raised as meat-eaters which I, of course, totally reject. I believe that I should raise my kids as vegetarians and as soon as they have opinions of their own, I will definitely let them choose for themselves!

    Tru, I am in the same situation as you! I am vegan and my husband is not. My husband will mostly eat what I prepare which is all vegan and if he wants meat he will grill his own and add it. We would like to start a family next year and we have already been in some serious debates about diet for our children. I of course want to raise our children vegan and let them decide what they want to eat when they are old enough but my husband thinks kids need to have meat in their diet to thrive. It has created tension in our house and I’m hoping he will see it my way, of course he is hoping I’ll change my mind! I don’t know if there is a compromise.
