Re: Dads rights: naming, circing, etc?
Morally speaking only...and only from my own point of view.
I would let Dad make the final decision on circing. But, if it were important enough to me, I think anybody I was married to would defer to mom's gut feeling.
As far as names go, I think I would compromise, but I would never saddle my child with a bad name, just because my husband loved it. I would saddle them with a bad middle name though.
Last name would be the same way. If my husband had a really bad last name, I'd probably use my average last name instead. My exs last name was Hooker. So, our daughter has my last name. My friend's last name was D!*kincast. Fifth grade was hard for her. LOL.
