Yeah if I was with a man who was "the problem" the man would be going, not my dogs. I married a man that wasn't always great with my dogs, nothing major but enough that I got a weird feeling. I ignored it, and he turned out to be abusive toward me (not long after we got married his true colours came out), thankfully I got out in time.
My dogs are as valued as my human children, you don't get rid of children because a newcomer to your life causes problems...you get rid of the person causing those problems to your family.
Teach your fiancé how to deal with your dog, if that's the problem it's not a worthy reason to get rid of a dog. I had to train my hubby (2nd one now) how to properly handle the dogs, he just wasn't a dog person, but he learned and now he's great with them. If the problem is bigger than just not knowing how to deal with him then I certainly wouldn't want to be with him.
Weird...so the original post of this thread, and the "update" today with wanting to re home again are exactly one year to the date apart lol. Just noticed that.
