I promise by next week, I’ll stop talking about marriage but this is something I’m curious about. When I got married, I decided to take my husband’s name. My maiden name was interesting and part of who I am, so I made it my middle name. I didn’t want to hyphenate because it would mean having a last name of 14 characters and nobody needs that.
What do you think about the practice of a wife taking her husband’s name? Hyphenation? Keeping her maiden name?Â If this is a decision you’ve dealt with or are dealing with, what were/are your reasons? Any guys out there take their wives’ name?
