Stay adamant about this! If you cave and circumcise and he changes his mind later on... and you'd most certainly regret the minute it's done, you'll be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
P***D OFF AT HIM, you barely be able to forgive (live?) w/ yourself, AND OF COURSE (((HIM))). And since you can't reverse this operation to its full intact state after it's done, leaving him intact and NOT making any hasty decisions is the best.
I wish you could make him see you're actually making it easier for HIM in the long-run, too!
Congratulations on the joy of having a boy-- despite this ordeal, which HE made happen, not you-- it's a wonderful gift (boyhood). And good luck.http://www.icgi.org/medicalization_o...ion.htm#Page_1
(P.S. This travel through the history of circumcision should point out how CRAZY it is, the "reasons" for circumcision, it should be a wake-up call into NOT doing stupid things for reasons unproven at the time and ultimately laughable [the reasons, not the issue] in hindsight!)
