Should a potential spouse's eating habits matter?
I know this is a bit of an odd question. Let me ask this another way.
If the person you were seeing would only eat expensive foods, unhealthy foods, or had some other extreme dietary "requirements" would you consider them OK spousal material? Would you consider how this might influence any children you eventually have?
If it matters to you, it matters.
No one can form your "must have" and "dealbreaker" list for you. It is personal, as unique as each person. What matters to one person may not to another. Smoking, drinking, level of activity/exercise, eating habits, cleanliness, how money is spent/saved, career aspirations, and on and on.
There is nothing wrong with knowing what your limits are and setting appropriate boundaries. No one should feel bad about ceasing a relationship when a deal breaker is encountered.
If you can't live with it for the next 50 years, then it's a deal breaker for YOU.
