I have been a vegan for about six months, prior to which I had been vegetarian since around the age of 12. My younger daughter has been vegetarian for almost a year. My wife has increasingly adopted a substantially vegetarian diet, after exposure to much brutal information about the farming and meat industry, and while occasionally she will eat meat or fish outside of the home, we have been a completely meat free house for the best part of a year. Only my elder daughter has been untouched by the horrors of meat and animal production, and uses ever opportunity when she is out of the house to eat meat, almost obsessively. My wife has never been particularly happy by my transition to a vegan lifestyle. I think she sees it as inconvenient, especially when eating out as her family gravitate towards pub eating where the choices are often poor. However, she does most of the cooking (I work full time, she doesn’t work) and generally produces vegan food, or if making vegetarian food for her and the girls, I will make my own. However, recently my wife used the heat of an argument about nothing of any real consequence, to determine that she would not be cooking vegan food anymore, yet more alarmingly was going to start buying meat again, principally for the elder daughter’s benefit (who is her favourite) and cooking it at home, and that she expects me to clean it up and wash up after it (I do all the washing up, or it simply would never get done). I’m really not happy with this suggestion - while I did clean up this kind of stuff in the distant past, it repulsed me and after a year of being a meat free household I don’t want it in my fridge, let alone be expected to clean up after it. How should I play this?
