Something a little different. My husband and I were second time arounders (is that a word?) lol. Anyway, both out of bad marriages. Mine was REALLY bad. So I went back to my maiden name, partly for security reasons and I found after a few months that I liked it. It was a struggle getting over the end of my marriage and I stayed on my own for more than a year before I started dating. I needed to find out who I was all over again. Well, when the love of my life and I got married I didn't want to change my name another time. I was honest about it with him and being older, he doesn't have an issue with it. I always tell him that he's part of my life because I want him to be, not because I need him to be and I learned that in the time I spent getting "me" back. I decided that I like being "me" so I haven't changed my name. It isn't an insult to him in any way. After 13 years together I love him more now than ever. Our kids are grown up and on their own so there aren't any "children" issues, and I know for some people they feel it does create problems dealing with schools and stuff. His parents think it's funny that I didn't change my name. But I just figure we can be a power couple and I can be his best friend without changing my last name.

 

Only my personal view, but maybe something for someone that is considering not changing their name.

 

Good luck everyone and enjoy your planning!!

I like my last name because if you ever google me I'm the only one.... If you google my first name with my FI last name there are tons of people....maybe that's a good thing...I don't know. I'm not sure if I will take his name or keep mine and his...or just keep my own.

 

while we are on the subject of signing names..? This might be a dumb question but..when signing your marriage certificate what do you sign? Your current name? Or future name?

Great question. I'd think your maiden name but what do I know.

haha I was having a conversation with my now husband about his last name just yesterday.  My new last name is Grant and I was complaining on how I don't like how my G's look in cursive he said to suck it up lol.  Its just hard after writing my name for over 25 years to all of a sudden change.  I need some practice.   <_<

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
