Anyone with a hyphenated last name experience any glitches of any sort after changing their name to the hyphenated Mrs. MyLastName-HisLastName while he, of course, still maintains his Mr. HisLastName? I am just curious about any problems that might arise under such circumstances with our last names not exactly matching, perhaps in terms of being recognized as a married couple for legal purposes or health coverage or what-have-you. I am planning to hyphenate and just want to be well-informed of the solid issues one might encounter (I can handle the rolling eyes and sarcastic remarks from some of those that wouldn’t understand my hyphenating. That’s not what I’m asking about, but rather, I’m asking for the hard facts of legalities and such, please.) Thanks in advance for explaining your experiences!
