Re: Dads rights: naming, circing, etc?
We both do the research and come to an agreement. Somethings we don't research though because it just makes sense to us. Like circ, we didn't research it and left them intact, just made sense *to us*. I would hate having to make all the decisions, and I would hate having DH make all the decisions. My DH did fill out the BC with ds1, and then with ds2 our MW did. We did both have to sign it though saying we are the parents of our kids.
