Re: Dads rights: naming, circing, etc?
I think the decision should be equal for all things unless there are some mitigating circumstances. I've never understood why some women seem to think the men should have no say.
However, if mom and dad disagree, someone has to "win" per say. I mean, you can't really compromise on some things, either you circ or your don't, either his name is John or Mark. So, when it comes to things like that, my husband and I usually go with whoever feels more strongly about it or has a valid moral conviction. Sometimes that is my husband and sometimes it is me.
Luckily, my husband and I very rarely have strong disagreements about issues of parenting.
