ohhhh!!! That happened to my brother!!!! And HE got really upset as well because he really didn’t like some “random” woman walking around with his name!!! He still is not over it and that woman has not remarried since!! 😀

Heads up, she might really change her name again soon!!

That would piss me off. And then I would be even more pissed off because there would be nothing I can do about it.

@Face:  I have a friend who has her ex’s and current husbands name hyphenated.  I think it is just tacky.  Why would anyone want to keep their ex’s last name??  I don’t get it.  When I got divorced, I was SOOOO happy to be rid of the name!!  HAHA!!

Do they have kids? I know some mothers want the same last name as their kids. If they dont kids have kids, she is crazy!

maybe she just hates her maiden name so decided to use her (ex) married name again.

Some people want to have the same name as their children. Also, if she hates her maiden name (maybe she had a bad relationship with her parents) that could be the reason.

If her second marraige was short, and the first one was longer I can understand this. She may have kept the last name after the first one, and then the second was so short it was easier for her to revert back to the old name. This also makes sense if she has kids. I reverted back to my maiden name and it causes all sorts of confusion. I hate being called Mrs. Kidlet’s Last Name. I correct everyone who does it. However my fiance has another name and when she’s in daycare this causes further confusion since all our last names are different. Soon though there will be only 2 last names in this house.

My mother was married for 24 years to my father, who left her for another woman, that he ended up marrying.

My mother still goes under her married name, because as she says, she’s not going to pretend for some homewrecking bitch anyone that those 24 years didn’t happen.  And legally, it’s still her name.  

Get over it, she can call herself whatever she damn well wants.  It’s none of your business anyway.

MY FI’s ex kept his name too. It was a way of feeling like she ‘kept’ a hold on him. She told him point blank she was going to keep it because she could and he couldn’t stop her (they don’t have kids FWIW and were married for a year).

I think it’s weird and a little creepy. I can’t imagine wanting to keep the last name of an ex, but whatever trips her trigger. It doesn’t keep me from taking his after we’re married.
