It’s fine to keep it as it is. If you refinance in the future, you can have the name changed on the deed through that process, since they will be re-filing the deed anyway. If you want to sell the house or take out a second mortgage before that happens, you’ll either submit a copy of your marriage certificate with your paperwork, or you’ll sign an additional form reflecting the change in name, depending on your state regulations.

Iwas told when I got married you don’t need to change the name on the deed or title of the house, when you go to sell you sign with your married name and write that you were married.
