This is just a variation of a problem you mentioned earlier (if not you specifically, it was in a thread you started, I believe)--people who come over to ostensibly help you clean out your house before a move and then second-guess you on every little thing: "Do you really
want to get rid of that? Oh, you'll need that in your new house! Why are you getting rid of this?" Only this time it's your husband, so you can't just send him home and sell or dump everything.
How many dinner parties does your husband plan to cook for and host where the china would be needed?
My inclination in these matters is to say, "Oh, OK, I'll keep it" and when the opportunity presents itself, dispose of it in whatever way you like without drawing any attention to yourself because chances are if you don't bring it up in the future your husband will never mention the dishes again.
