I can understand why over history the woman took her husband’s name as he was there to take care of her, protect her and was the main bread winner in the family and it was important to keep the "family" name going. BUT as we as a people and society evolve and men realize that women are our equals and partners then we have to evolve and let them keep their identity if they so choose. I do not have a problem with Glass keeping her maiden name and I was and am proud she elected to take my last name also.

Thanks for the story. I was just wondering what the deal was and if is a new trend. I really don't see it hurting anyone in any way.

I didn't exactly demand it like that. I told her how I felt about it and after some thought she agreed.
Ok, good deal! Everyone is happy, so no issue. I still say you got the better end of the deal. She even married you when you had a shiner. That is love right there, brother. Plus, you married out of your league. I did the same, twice.

My wife never even questioned it. She has my last name, her maiden name is now her middle name and it was the best day of her life.

My oldest daughter earned a lot of academic recognition under the family name - so she kept it even after she married. I gave her hell about possibly using the hyphen crap and she said "I'm a Fitzgerald, he can change his damn name"...

First post and follow-up are consistent but didn't really agree with the last. Peer pressure?

A couple I work with have an interesting situation. He took HER last name when they wed. He was an orphan and had no living blood relatives. Her father treated him like a son, so he took her family name when they got married. We gave him hell for a while, but I understand why he did it.

My spouse kept her previous married name to keep the tie to her son. Now that he is off to college, she will likely change hers to mine.

After my wife's divorce from her first husband, she took back her maiden name. When we got married she asked if I had a problem with her keeping it and hyphenating it with my last name. I told her it was no problem with me. After a few years she quit using her maiden name and now only uses mine.

She came to see the superiority of my last name....what, what, was it something I said???
