FI couldn't care less lol there is argument however about what our kids will be called i keep putting my name last with a hyphen lol the way i look at it when the kid is born i'll be the one registering it so tough lmfao
I told my dad I wasn't changing my name and he said "that's my girl" lmao there are only 2 of us left so i feel i need to carry it on and anyway FI's surname is the one his mother changed anyway not his birth name so he can shut it lol

I am a feminist and I feel that a last name does conceal my identity or make me less of a feminist by taking his name. I feel that having the option of not taking his name is what I like. Women have a choice to do and be who they want to be... Women have come a long way in this world and I think we show our independence and strength in a lot more ways then a last name!!!

I am keeping my name for the time being. My fiance and I have also been together for almost 9 years, but he thinks me keeping my name is fine-he wouldn't want to change his. I have had mixed reactions from people I have told, I like my name and don't see any reason to have to have a new one. Maybe if I have kids I will change it, but for now it will stay. Good luck!

I guess I always thought it would have happened a lot sooner and I wouldn't be so attached.
But in the end I am going to change it, I too am big on traditions.

But seriously, I'm going to use both names at work. It's just too hard otherwise. I think part of me feels like to stay an independent woman, I need that to stay. I don't know.
It is funny how guys are so touchy about it.
