I was raised catholic but my husband wasnt really raised with any religion in his home. I want our son to get baptised in my church and while i was pregnant he agreed. But now we cant agree on the godparents. I picked my best friend to be the godmother because neither of us have sisters and all of his friends r guys. But now we dont agree on the godfather. I want my brother to be it but my husband wants his brother or one of his friends. But none of them are catholic and only a few r christian. And to be honest none of them are the kind of guys that i want guiding my son in his religious beliefs or anything for that matter. I dont know what to do and my family keeps putting pressure on me to get it done

There is no rule that says you have to only have one godmother and one godfather. So you can have one godmother and two godfathers if you wish. Though since this is a faith/religious decision the people you pick should help guide your child as well as you as parents in the faith walk. They do not need to be stronger or at the same spot as you in their faith walk to guide, they just have to be someone that will help carry that out. One thing to remember is that God has a plan. Sometimes God puts a child in the situation for others to grow in their faith. My best advise is to pray about it. Ask God who he thinks would be the best God parents. He is the one that knows the walk your son is going to take and who would be the best people to help him along that walk.
