I agree, it will be great for you two to have this in common.
I am the one that brought up the idea of beekeeping and I read all the books, ordered the equipment and all that stuff but my husband went to beekeeping classes with me.
He is more of the hands on type for learning so I pretty much have to learn everything I can and then show him.
He wants to leave all the decisions up to me as far as how we approach things because he knows that I know more than him right now but he is happy to be involved.
Annette, maybe he will come around and be more interested someday, especially as you become more deeply involved in it, he may decide he wants to be a part of that.
You never know
