My first marriage ended in divorce in the 1980's. (My Ex and I continued to share responsibilities for raising our children; now all grown.) I didn't have many dates. BUT it turned out that every woman who went out with me was a vegetarian! Since I was not a vegetarian at the time, any possible relationship never got off the ground.
Now I know what you all are thinking: This handful of women were not all vegetarians. They just said that to quickly and completely break off any hopes of a relationship. And it worked.
Then I met Arlene (my caregiver and spouse for over 20 years). After we dated a couple of times, I told her the above story. To this she said: "You know, I always thought I should be a vegetarian." So there you have it. God was sending only vegetarians and vegetarian-want-a-bees into my life. I had absolutely no choice. What can you do when God stacks the cards? So I'm a vegetarian.
