[quote="mabli"]If your gf fundamentally disagreed with the speaking of Welsh, would you have a kid with her? If you did could you see problems on the horizon?
If that were the case, to that extent, I would not be in a relationship with that person in the first place, and certainly not cohabiting. Nothing more counterproductive than getting all psyched up for a good night's work of pouring some petrol in some letterboxes with the bois and then realizing that number eight on your calling list is your own gaff, is there?
It's a bad analogy to use, not least for the inherent overstatement - from my understanding of this specific instance, and of others like it to a greater or lesser extent, the more apt analogy would be to have a non-Welsh partner who is happy for me to be Welsher than Welsh and all that entails, but is reluctant to really describe themselves as being Welsh and has reservations about say, a Welsh medium education for the kids. (For the record on this matter, I'd be disappointed if Gelert 2.0 were only subjected to Welsh and/or English. I'd hope for at least one more language. Or several. Bonus points for languages to be able to safely slag off the old man in.)
Call me picky, but if someone had a major difference of opinion on something important to me (and that person) that I couldn't talk with them about to resolve the matter to at least some kind of eventually mutual satisfaction, I'd not be looking to have kids with them, I'd be looking to pop smoke and bug out.
Most relationships involve (at least) two people with not only a big overlap in the Venn diagram but also mutually exclusive bits which can sometimes need some work to reconcile. Even a bed of roses has its thorns. What those bits of the Venn diagram are is immaterial compared to how the people go about resolving them.
This is not because this is a problem specific to veganism, or raising kids in a particular language, or dinnertime topics of conversation, or repeatedly maxing out the joint account on deluxe fetish paraphernalia. It's a problem of communication or, most bluntly, about two people being together that perhaps should think about that fact very carefully if they can't sort it out.
From an isolated post on an internet forum by someone I've never met, I'm confident that is not the case with the OP and his partner!
