My husband and I are married 4.5 years. We have similar interests and an unbelievable telepathic energy. We often times call or text each other at the exact same time or share the same thought. One year we even gave each other the same Valentine's card and teddy bear.
Over the course of our marriage and becoming parents to two beautiful young children, our vast differences have become increasingly apparent to the point I feel completely disheartened and I'm realizing we are in fact polar opposites, more different than similar. I'm disheartened because the issues where we differ are significant.
One of the main issues for me is that my husband absolutely refuses for our children to learn Spanish. His reasoning: two languages will confuse them, they are American and English needs to be their main language, that it's not fair to him that I would speak Spanish with the kids and he would be excluded from the convo (he's not interested in learning Spanish), he wouldn't know what is being discussed. If he hears me speak a few words to the kids in Spanish, he makes faces or will "correct" with the English translation.
Why do I want our children to learn Spanish? Because it's my native language, I am of Hispanic origin and beside it being a part of my culture, there are obvious benefits to being bilingual. People pay top dollar to have their children learn a second language and here my husband completely opposes me teaching our children.
Can anyone provide any insight or suggestions as to how to handle?
