is driving me a little batty. I love him and we're super excited about getting married but he has a lot of opinions that conflict with my own. We're usually able to compromise but lately I feel like it's his way or nothing. The current issue is the registry. He sees no reason for a bridal shower or for us to have a registry. We're 29 & 30 and we both have plenty of stuff. But it would be nice to get that composter or amazing sheet set that neither of us can currently afford. His argument is that he would rather receive money if people feel the need to give gifts. I think it's super rude to not give guests the option and also I would much rather have people who want to give gifts give us things we've asked for instead of them buying us random wedding stuff we might not like.
How do I explain this to him in a way he can understand?
