Okay, maybe you other bee’s have an easier time to adap or such and Im just the strange one here, but I always thought I would hypenate my name or at one point during my teenage years, I said I would always keep it. When we got engaged though, I decided one day after some though, that I would like to take his name, knowing it wouldnt change my independance or who I was etc. so for me, I was happy to share in it. For some bees, they take his/her name, and for other, they keep theirs or hypenate- whatever makes you happy, I say go for it- whatgever makes everyone happy! And who knew for me, it was taking my now husbands last name( although I prefer to call it sharing our last name than “taking’ his) My fiance was actually shocked I was ‘taking’ his name as I had always been adament I wasnt.
But now, after the wedding, when someone even jokingly, even calls me, Mrs( new last name)and forgive me – but I cringe because IT SOUNDS SO STRANGE!
I wanted to take his last name, and I have, and Im happy I did, but I still feel like shouting at every person who yells ” Hi Mrs. ( new last nams) that Im ms/mrs. (old last name) just because it sounds so weird(?) and strange hearing that and that Im not Ms. ( old last name anymore)
I changed my name on facebook yesterday( oh facebook ) and I kept laughing and laughing when I see this new name- it just doesnt sound like me??
I have a few friends that changed EVERYTHING that day after they got married and were so happy to be introduced as only – hello, this is my husband,mr. ancovie I’m Mrs. ( new last name- ancoive) how can I help you?” versus me- Im like, this is my husband, bob and Im first name- no last name, just bob and me, thats all- we dont have last names, we just bob and me.
Again, I am so happy to be calling him husband and ecstatic to be playfully calling him “hubby” becuse I love nicknames for him, and I glad I “changed” my name butttt…..I have just been a me ( old last name) for so long, as much as I happy to be part of the married club, but being Mrs. ( new last name) is just strange.
Am I the only one that, although you took your new husband’s/wifes name, it feels strange saying it? Mind you, Im not even 2 weeks after the wedding, so it may take a little while to setgtle in, but if one more person calls me Mrs. (new last name) i think I will just not laughing.
