When I first approached him he was close minded and was adamant that I stay on the pill or we use condoms ALL the time. The second time around I brought my research and explained what FAM was and how it could work if done properly. Although, he does not get involved with the details he is on board. All he really wants to know is whether or not we should use a condom.
I'm not charting now, but I did chart my temps when we were TTC and he found it pretty interesting. I'm not sure he could ever be on board with having to abstain like you do w/ NFP, but who knows? We got married as virgins and were ready for a baby whenever and now I'm exclusively BFing but pretty much ready for another baby whenever, so we've never had to prevent! But I"m sure we will some day, and then we will be using NFP or FAM and DH is totally on board with that idea.....except for the abstaining thing.
He thought it was only for people trying to get pregnant, and figured that meant we were ttc! I had to explain that it can be used the other way, too... I think he's okay with it overall. Other than that original reaction, he really hasn't said anything.
He didn't seem to happy about getting into the details with me when we did the course, but he's fine with me using this method of birth control. He'll take my temp for me in the morning if I ask him too, and is willing to use a condom if I'm fertile!
