I'm sure some of you have always lived a more mindful lifestyle, but for those of you (like myself) who have more slowly adopted an alternative lifestyle after meeting your partner, how have they handled the changes? Enthused? Tolerant? Resistant?
I ask because I feel like I might be creeping up on the limits of what DH is willing to adopt. Actually, I think it's less resistance to any specific thing, and more so that I've kind of taken over our home life and he feels out in the cold and like he doesn't have much involvement in anything. Which is understandable!
For the record, he has followed me a LONG way down this path with nothing but loving support. I had my mind made up about home birth, extended breastfeeding, cosleeping, etc, before we married, and he accepted it. Then I went all "unconditional parenting" on him, and he has accepted that, too. Then replacing paper towels with cloth, then making my own household cleaners, then TF/paleo diet, then family cloth, no 'poo, OCM...but the latest thing, the TV, might be the line in the sand.
We cut our cable for a few months when we moved, and I didn't miss it, but he did. We definitely weren't TV-free, we still had streaming Netflix. This week we're having cable re-installed...he misses watching sports, and the olympics coverage did him in. I'm also trying to kick the TV out of the living room and into our spare bedroom. Maybe that will be our compromise; cable, but not in the living room.
Has your partner resisted any of your crunchy ways? Or are they gung-ho? Somewhere in the middle?
