She didn't change it. Never got around to it after the honeymoon. Now frick if I am giving any more money to the gov't even if it is just to add my last on to hers.






it's like $10

ETA: did your wife tell you it was expensive? maybe she really wants to keep her name

why wouldn't it last? My wife never took my name. We've been at it for years.



Im speaking in general terms. Of course there are exceptions. I just feel like most women who would be inclined to not take their husbands name wouldn't be insistent on making it work. Probably because I associate those kinds of women with the feminist kind and they usually don't take well to being in a long term relationship with men.

Believe it or not I know a married couple where the guy took HER last name.

I have two daughters and if either of them ever shows up with such a pusillanimous twerp then I'll drop kick his arse into the next county.

So my mom never changed her last name when my parents married 31 years ago. She was in her early 30's and ran her own early education school and didn't want to change it. My dad didn't care.

She told me that if she had been married right out of HS or college, she would have changed it. Having parents with two different last names (and still married) did cause a few weird looks though.

As the son of an event planner, very important. Seating is a bitch when they don't know you're married.

Been married for 17 years. Before my wife and I got married, I told her it was completely up to her. If she wanted to, then fine. If not, then fine.

She took it. Still sounds funny to me.

It probably makes it easier with kids and having to explain it to other people, but that wouldn't have been a good enough reason for me to insist on it.

My wife took my last name as hers. She changed her middle name to her maiden name, not hyphenated with my last name. Works out well in all scenarios.

That is WAY worse

If I married a celeb then sure keep your name.

But my wife will have my name. My kids will certainly have my name

Your friend made a huge mistake. Her refusal to take his name means that she doesn't respect him enough. A newly wed woman should want to take her husband's name. Feminism is destroying marriage in this society.


Why is this so? Would you take her name if she asked you to? Put the shoe on the other foot.

Why, this makes sense to me if both were happy with it.

My fiancée and I are getting married in December. Luckily her last name is from her dead beat dad who left town and she wants to change it badly. Her mom has the same since they were married and never changed it for my fiancées sake but once we get married she is going back to her maiden name and my fiancée is taking mine.

Otherwise no marriage. Just saying.

The "macho caveman males" on here amaze me. You expect women to take your name even if they don't want to? If women asked you to take their name, would you? If not, then you are a hypocrite. You can't "demand" that they take your name if you wouldn't be willing to do the same for them. It's just a name and if women aren't comfortable taking yours, let them keep theirs, go with a hyphenated name, or choose a new last name. There is no woman who should marry a man who demands that they take their name. If a man is that close minded, he would start demanding other things as well. Marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship.

Do you and your wife use the same brand of tampons?
