Hi Shel, I think it ultimately comes down to how often you think you will use the pool. If you are the sort of person that loves to entertain and have people over, then having extra space is probably the best option for you.
alternatively if you enjoy taking daily swims for exercise then you may find that the convenience of having the pool in your house makes sense. however, if you only use the pool a few times then you may as well utilize the space to entertain people.
your husband is also right about upkeep of a pool... its definitely an added hassle if you really aren't going to use it that much
