My DH and I are in complete disagreement about circing. We have had knock-down, drag-out fights which end in screaming and crying and one of us walking out. It's ugly.
He is so adamant about circing our son (if we do indeed have a boy); he truly believes we will harm and scar our son emotionally if we do not circ. His primary reasoning is not medical, but only emotional and psychological. He also thinks it's only something "alternative parents" do and that I'm taking this stance just to be different.
With all of that being said, DH has conceded for now. He thinks it is the wrong decision, feels our son will resent us for this and fully believes that he will come to us when he's 15 asking to be circ'd. But, he also admits that he doesn't want to "ruin" the experience of pregnancy with this issue looming over our heads. He also doesn't want to take away from the pure joy and happiness of the upcoming birth day. For those reasons, and those reasons alone, he has given in to me.
It's not the way I wanted to "win". I wanted him to understand and agree that circ-ing in unnecessary and cruel and be proud that we are leaving our son intact. But you know what? I'll take it anyway I can get it.
Good luck to you!

(No, I am NOT trying to start a discussion on this!!!! Just pointing out the flaw in the argument. Might want to find a new one.)
