So who would date someone that is a meat eater?  Would that be a deal breaker for you?  Would you try to talk them into being a vegetarian/vegan?  Or could you deal with them eating meat?  It's funny because now that I think about it, I have been attracted to many vegetarians, even now I just found out that there is someone I like that does not eat meat.  I can't say for sure right now if I would or would not date a meat eater because love should be about more than just one thing, however at the same time I would like someone who shares the same viewpoint on this issue.  Anyway, yea, or nay for everyone else?

I'm from India and people have been divided into thousands of communities since ancient times. And traditionally (and to an extent even now), people are only allowed to marry within their communities.

One of the points that divided people into different communities was vegetarianism. So if a person belonged to a vegetarian community, he should marry another person also from the same vegetarian community and thereby their kids also became vegetarian. This was done since ancient times. By this way, vegetarianism has been thriving for thousands of years. And that's why 40% of Indians (around 400+ million) are still vegetarian even now.

Yeah, I have a friend from India (his parents are, he was born in America) and they are all vegetarians.  But for communities or countries that dont have these divided communities in can be hard to find people.

That's true. But since veganism/vegetarianism is still in the nascent stages in countries like USA (I live here too btw), if more and more vegans/vegetarians adopt a similar rule (like looking out for other vegans/vegetarians), then several hundred years from now, I think the number of vegans/vegetarians would be substantially sure :)
