    I already changed my name on there but am going to legally change my name this week. I wasn’t comfortable sending out originals of the important docs they require.

    Hmm that’s interesting to think about! I was just going to change it on FB that week, but then my legal name change won’t be for a few months so we have time to deal with getting new passports and id’s etc. Is that weird?

    I changed mine the night we were married, it was late and we were back in our hotel room exhausted so but before going to sleep I quick went on and updated to “married” and “new last name”.
