    I might be a little uptight about this.

    Yes, of course... I share my food with all those that are hungry.

    Yes, I let my wife eat part of my meal at the restaurant after she orders a small salad.

    Anyone that I'm either (a) married to, or (b) I sired, then yes. Otherwise, nope.

    The only thing that freaks me a little is sharing at a work dinner or work lunch. Like if my boss orders one dessert but 5 spoons.

    My wife and I went on a cruise with friends. After the first night, my buddy and I began the practice of ordering 3 entrees and sharing one of them. I don't know that I'd call it eating off of each other's plate - but it was probably close.

    Aside from that - I abide by the spouse or offspring rule.

    LOL. That's my mom when we order dessert. She doesn't get any but makes sure to take a bite from everyone else.

    Our family shares a dessert two or three ways. If there's four people - two desserts.

    Gidget can never make up her mind at restaurants and always wants me to order something that she wants to try. It's annoying AF.

    There's something about the wetness of food that makes me not want to share it on my plate.

    Tortilla chips? Not really an issue.

    But nachos--hell no.

    You're a rational person. Bet you wouldn't share a bowl of soup from the same container?

    I'm guessing a lot of you would have problems eating Fufu and Peanut Soup with Nigerians. Also, eating traditional meals in Morocco.

    I’d share with MJ but no one else. Not even my kids.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf
