Anyone else not changing names?

My FI didn't mind too much. I've always been independent. And kids will have his last name (I might try to sneak my last name as a middle name to pass it along - but thats still being debated). Some people have made their comments, but it our lives and our choice and think it should be up to each couple to decide.

I didn't read through all of the comments thus I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this, but the laws regarding the legal last name of a married woman vary by state. For example, if married and domiciled in California, the woman's legal last name automatically becomes the man's legal last name. Whereas in Nevada, there needs to be a legal name change...hence the reason we wed in Tahoe, but on the Nevada side.
I wouldn't worry about the comments others make. It's not their business which last name you choose to use.
The bride asked me to plan her wedding w/the help of a WC. Yay!

I've been married before and even on my divorce certificate it had my maiden name lol made me laugh that the only way people would know i've been married is if they drove 200 miles and checked at a random registry office lol
FMIL won't be happy about me not changing my name but to be honest she can poke off nothing to do with her lol FI isn't bothered in the slightest mostly because even if he was I still wouldn't do it I'd just say ok we won't get married then lol
We always argue over the kid thing because he says we'll hyphen the kid's name lol I laugh and change it round so that my name is last lol and once i've registered it tough crap lmao
My line will go on lmfao

I also got some grief from a few family members and still do. Mainly, brother and sister-in-law but I'm not the type to be polite about issues which are non of anyone's business! DH and I both would tell people that it's OUR business and we'll deal with it as we see fit whenever anyone would try to put in their 2 cents. DH has also been great about defending this decision of mine.
It's your name and no one has the right to take it from you! Unless you're willing to give it up

Their dad re-married so their step-mom's last is the same as theirs ... so at their schools it would make me feel ... strange I guess to not have their name ... but I'm their MOM and I know it and they know it so I guess that's all that matters. I'll get used to it ... *SmiLes* Suzanne

My fiance joked he would change his name to my last name because he likes that it is easy to spell and pronounce. We are still officially on the fence. I have a year
