So, if DH agrees to a UC, if I tear, how do we deal with that? Does DH have to learn to stitch it up if its too big? I didn't tear with my last two (well I did with my second, but didn't need stitches), but I'd like to be prepared for anything.
question about tearing.....
"Does DH have to learn to stitch it up if its too big?"
No; I would not recommend getting stitches from someone who doesn't have experience with suturing, especially in such a sensitive area.
If you have a tear that you think needs stitches, I would ask a friendly midwife for help, otherwise you need to go to the hospital for stitching.

I usually avoid the Skeptical OB, but this post has good pictures that show how to tell how bad a tear is:
