I knew that DP was not onboard with keeping #2 (if it ends up that we have a boy) intact, but I thought that he just gave in. I brought it up in the car the other day to make sure we were on the same page, and we are not. His reasons are SO irritating. He doesn't want him made fun of in the locker room, he says the first time he is going to have sex the girl won't want to because he won't be circumcised, and because "it looks weird".
He doesn't believe me when I tell him that circ is becoming less and less popular. And his reasonings make me so upset. I started crying in the car. I have such guilt over circumcising #1, and I refuse to do it again.
I don't know what to do if we can't agree. I'm not going to give in, but I don't want this to cause any arguments.
Does anyone have any articles that would be particularly persuasive for dads?
UPDATE: I hadn't been forcing any info re: circumcision onto DP, because I already decided that it wasn't happening. Yesterday at our MW appointment, I saw that they had some pamphlets on the subject, so I just grabbed them. I handed them to DP last night and he said, "I already thought about it and I'm fine not doing it. But I think if he wants to when he gets older then we should let him". Thank god.
