- Wedding: September 2013
Ok so I have to share this story because I just wanted to Kiss my FI after he parked his Mother. As a background, FI and I have expressed that we may never have children as we both want to accomplish alot and travel first. She has NEVER accepted this notion and just said “one day you will”.
A few weekends ago we were all hanging out, FI parents, recently married brother and new wife and his aunt and uncle. I was asked if I would change my last name once we were married and when I said I wasn’t sure a conversation ensued about it. Everyone was supportive of the idea of me keeping my last name the same but if I get called by FI’s last name, I wouldn’t correct them, I would be fine with that…but legally still me.
The only opposition to this idea was FMIL who was wondering why I wouldn’t want to be “one of them”. She was generally ignored during the discussion. I then asked my new sister in law if she had done the paperwork change for her recent marriage to Fi’s brother. She said no, it was too much paperwork and had the same theory as me of keeping her name as-is and going by new last name in social situations.
At that point, FMIL goes “well when you have children it will be too confusing” to which I saw FI’s face flash quickly in annoyance, look right at his mom and go “who says we are having children?”.
Well that ended the debate and she stormed off to go get ready for the day.
I just wanted to give him a big ass hug and kiss!
