    @smcs28:  That’s maybe the strangest thing I’ve ever heard in terms of name changing EVER.

    I love saturday night beverages…

    I hyphenated my name because I use my maiden name professionally. I love my married name so I can be a Mrs.

    @smcs28:  One of FI’s aunts kept her ex’s names. She had kids with him. She’s engaged and said she won’t change her last name. IE Not take her new husbands name at all…

    What is weird is that she has NO children…from her ex her or new husband (assuming she can’t)…..

    I sort of get keeping your kids name….I personally would never choose that route though…..

    Haha.

    I didn’t change my name, but go by his socially (when I remember anyway).  As long as a wedding invitation is addressed to both of us, I don’t care what name is used (but I prefer the correct spelling!)

    This is a very beautiful thread. Bookmarking it for when I get around to the invitation madness and am a glass or two of wine in and cussing at the dang things. Speaking of wine…
