    I didn’t change mine. I like my name the way it is, Darling Husband didn’t care either way, and nobody’s tried to give us any grief over it.

    I’m keeping my last name as I am a professional and I have worked really hard for years to develop name recognition. I also hate the tradition of it. It makes no sense. Some traditions are not worth saving, mearly because they are tradition. I hate that people in this culture think that it is the norm in the rest of the world, when it really is not. It is actually only a small percentage of the world that believes that a woman should automatically change her name when she becomes the partner of another person. We are in the process of deciding what to do about the names of our children. They will likely have both names with his last name as a second middle name and mine as the last name, because he comes from a huge family so there are already many children in our community running around with his last name (his idea). My Fiance doesn’t care in the least, nor do his friends. I wouldn’t be marrying him if he was the type of guy who did care.
