DH and I were discussing this the other day and he doesn't see the purpose of godparents. I'm Hispanic, so in the Hispanic culture is very common to have godparents, whether you're catholic or not. I love my godmother and godfather, they are VERY important in my life and I can't imagine not having them. I decided I want my cousin who I grew up with and is like a sister to me, to be the godmother of our first child and then I told DH that he could choose the godfather. His answer was "our kids are not having godparents, we're not catholic and that's stupid, I don't see the point". I got kind of hurt and upset at his attitude. I have adopted American traditions that I never celebrated because I know they are important to him, so you'd think he would be a little more sensitive about it. Anyways, our kids are having godparents regardless of what he thinks, and I'll just have to choose them myself.
So I was wondering, what is your take in having/being a godparent?
