ToniToni:  I’ve never seen any woman get angry at another woman for not taking her husbands name. Especially in America you can do whatever the hell you want with your name. You can literally change it at any time for any reason to almost anything.

SOOO many women don’t take their husband’s name. And some do because it’s nice or because of whatever reason THEY think is a good one. Some men also take their wife’s name. I know people in REAL LIFE! 

Post is definitely not based on facts. Granted I didn’t read all of it but what I read was just anger at nothing.

1. No one is forcing you to change your name.

2. I have every intention of changing my name and not looking back because I have the last name of the man who walked out on his family to go hop into bed with his flavor of the week. So no, I’m no LESS of a person for scrapping the name of a man whom I have grown to hate.

3. Change your name if you want to, don’t change it if you don’t want to. No one really gives a damn.
