what name will their kid take?
I didn't ask, but I would assume it'd be the guy's. Which like someone in the thread said, it's gonna die anyway. Maybe it's just a female thing where they don't want the onus on them that they actually went to court and changed it(killed it off) themselves? Who knows.
Related to the question in the OP, as a man which would you rather have if your wife did indeed want to keep her name... your name-her name or just her name? Hyphenations usually piss me off and are uppity as frick.
