Wow, I could not live with someone so blase about the life of a pet, whether it is a fish or a cat or a dog. That personally for me would be the breaking point of that particular relationship, but I guess it boils down to how much of a negative that is when weighed against the positives of the relationship.
I am an avid animal lover and my fish are a huge chunk of my life, so if I had a partner who could not accept that or was resentful of that fact, then that is a relationship I would be forced to break off.
IMO partners should be respectful of each others' hobbies and passions. Furthermore, I have always found a good judge of character is how someone treats animals.
