If SO/DH would not, did not, waiver on his feelings on circ-ing what would you do?
It sounds as if your SO is ignorant and completely uneducated about circumcision. Honestly, if he were there is no way he would allow it to happen to his son.
A LOT of women here have educated their husbands/SO...given them reading material so that they become educated and then can make a less emotional, more rational decision. Sad but most circumcised men automatically want to circumcise because that is in their comfort zone and that is all they know. They don't realize what was taken from them. Circumcision removes the most sensitive parts of the penis, and alters the mechanics of masturbation/intercourse for the rest of a man's life. Sadly, a man who is cut as a child will never know what it is like to have a fully functioning penis, and not know what he is missing.
But, if I had a partner, who I shared the information with...who read it and STILL wanted to have our son cut. Nope, I would NOT have children with them. Likely I would also leave the relationship completely. The disregard for scientific facts/as well as my feelings about keeping my son whole and perfect would be too much. An intact penis is the default. Every human being deserves the right to an intact body.
