Is it just the two of you? If so why not? Go for something different this year! This would make a delightful main: https://food52.com/recipes/19878-nach-waxman-s-brisket-of-beef

If there are more people joining you who expect the traditional, maybe ask your significant other if they'd be willing to forgo their preference just this time. Have you brined a bird already? If not, this one can go right in the oven: https://food52.com/recipes/14669-butter-and-herb-roast-turkey

Depends.
Do you want to keep dating this person?
Is there a middle ground?

Or, is the brisket just so culturally dissonant for you for Thanksgiving?

I think I'll continue dating him. Made turkey but allowed for one full hour of country music. Fair, right ?
