Some people act strange when they fall in love.
Indeed, love can and will change you, but there are times when you can't recognize the person that you used to know before it all happened. The life-changing relationship experience.
Sometimes couples stop smoking cigarettes, biting their nails, eating less fast food, they even exercise more. And all of this, in the name of love.
Hey, but we're all different, and love has her strange ways, so no judging. At all!
But recently, there was a couple that got all the attention. And the reason for this was a cat. Eager to find out more? Hmmm…
Just A Normal Couple
A 22-old-man has been dating his girlfriend for 7 months. According to him, she's amazing, and they're super compatible in a lot of ways.
His girlfriend is also a vegan, a fact which shouldn't make a whole lot of difference. But this was not the case with this couple. The answer hides behind the way she approaches veganism.
It's A New Day
One day, the girlfriend asked him to sit down and admitted the ugly truth. She said that there was no future until the boyfriend gives his beloved furry friend away.
She had her reasons, and one of them was - it violates the principles of veganism.
The guy felt these sentences like a slap in his face. And who wouldn't? A pet is something valuable to you. It's not a toy. It's a friend. And no matter what happens in life, we never abandon our friends.
This Is How The Story Goes
He decided to share this story on Reddit, and see how people were going to react to it.
This is how it went:
Reactions From Everywhere
And these are some of the comments that people left under his story:
Behind Their Eyes
Later, the boyfriend shared an update post on relationship advice.
He made it clear from the start that his girlfriend's extreme views on domestic cats are not representative of the vegan/vegetarian community as a whole.
The man wrote an explanation:
"I do think that, sometimes, new vegans can be a little overzealous. In reality, most of us are just doing the best that we can to not hurt animals!"
For all those curious souls over the Internet who're wondering, the author has also said that they broke up for obvious reasons.
"I would never, ever give up my cat Mittens. Many users said that this situation was about control, not veganism, and looking back, I do see a pattern of control on my girlfriend's part."
The author then concluded that he was blind to the whole situation. And given the issues they had, he decided it was best for them to part ways.
Sometimes, to end a relationship that doesn't fulfill you in any way is the best thing that you could ever do for yourself.
