I didn’t read the articles, but how the hell is it anyone else’s business or right to take away your RIGHT to have your husband’s name? Its as ridiculous as making abortion illegal, or not allowing gays to marry. I would be pissed as hell if I got married, and then was told I could not take my husband’s name

Ok, so I just read the second article, and it seems ludicrous that only one province (which is your equivalent to a state here in US, right?) is allowed something different than the entire country. I understand women equal to men, blah blah blah, but to make it ILLEGAL to change to your husband’s name??? What kind of sense does that make?? Just don’t change your name, simple as that. I dont’ see why making it a law makes one bit of sense

Woo-hoo! Awesome plan! A pain in the butt, yes, but awesome! I can be at the court house if you need a witness 😉

As for the part where they are advocating women’s rights by taking away their right to choose? Completely ridiculous and I think I said so on your other thread.

@Oneeleven: Totally, totally agree with you, and I am pissed and furious on all these women’s behalves. It seems to me that most laws in the world are to suppress women’s rights (abortion, name change, etc), not advocate for them. Really makes me SMH at the way the world works.

hell yes, I would help you, cuz hell, if you have a million dollars, you could fund my appeal through the States, right? 😉

Honestly, sometimes things in QC are upside down.

I am not sure how this will effect me. I will be getting married in qc but I live in Ontario. 
I am hoping to hyphenate his name and will actually be hyphenating my daughter’s name too.

@Oneeleven: Well that is pretty crappy. Then that means that my daughter will not be able to have the same name as her siblings when we move to quebec? 

It’s all so confusing!

Wow – as an Ontarian I had NO IDEA that you couldn’t assume your husbands name after marriage.

Taking away your right to choose seems like it is not supporting womens rights at all! This seems so absurd!

yup, thats quebec for you. i also want to change my name and will do so in ontario! lucky for us, my husband now has a job in Toronto so we just moved here.  however, i am still a student in quebec, so i am not sure how to go about the name change thing.  i wonder if i should wait until i am done my degree….

i have a friend who has lived in toronto the last 5 years and got married here. she grew up in Montreal though. she told me that AFTER she changed ALL her documentation in Ontario, she was in Montreal for a visit and had to go to the hospital for something.  they saw her documents, asked her maiden name, and then gave her a hospital card with her maiden name on it!!!! how ludacrous is that!?
