It was encouraging to find that fasting restrictions were not as off-putting to the dietary isolationists (if we can call them that) as other reasons.  Among the couples I have known, the woman’s dietary preferences have won out pretty much every time, especially when it is a case of ethically-inspired veganism.  After lenten seasons, I have had enough quasi-veganism to last me a long time, so I always marvel at other Orthodox who are vegan or vegetarian year-round.
