i've only been veggie for a month or so and i try not to talk about my reasons too much w/ my husband... but when i do. he goes off. like he says all the typical responses and just does not get it. one time he actually said to me "i dont like vegetarians cause they're annoying like you". welllllll it's frustrating as hell! BUT i love him to death. im staying with him. and ASTRO, i can finally understand some of your points.
