Wow. That is a seriously screwed up comment to make.

I kept my maiden name and I so glad I did! It causes a bit of confusion with people sometimes, but whatever. Not that big of a deal.

I think because the majority of married women take their husbands name and want to have kids when you go agains that especially in front of someone who is ‘the norm’ they get insecure and can’t handle it. DH and I have been saying we aren’t sure about kids since day #1 and people either respond that they don’t believe us or that we’re wrong for even feeling that way, no one seems to understand. I think it scares people that we want to do something different instead of what’s expected of us.

@moderndaisy: agreed. And sometimes people do what they think is expected of them and not what they really want…so when someone else does what they secretly wanted to do, they get nasty in defense.
