Wife doesn't respect son's vegetarianism
It's OK that you don't agree -- even parents who are typically in sync will diverge on something -- as long as you work together in good faith to find a solution you can both accept and apply consistently with your kid.
Eight is also old enough to start participating in some meal planning and cooking. Get your son an age-appropriate vegetarian cookbook and enlist his help in planning and preparing meals that can please the whole family. It could ease some of the inconvenience and nutrition worry, which might help solve the problems with the wife.
