Are You Changing Your Last Name, Hyphenating, Or Keeping Your Name

Recommended Posts

My Mother's line has four daughters. If we all change our last names, there goes our line.

This was the case for a close friend of mine as well. In one of the most touching tributes to his future in laws, her fiancé took HER last name to carry the line forward with their kids. Her parents were sooo touched- and it was seriously one of the most amazing parts of the wedding. It showed how truly great this man was... And he has proudly carried her last name for over a decade now, along of course with their 3 kids... 2 of which are boys. The name will carry on due to a totally unorthodox gesture.

That's totally awesome! We have two daughters and I am not having anymore. So, no sons here. I wonder if my fiancée would consider the same. #foodforthought

I am an only daughter and am choosing to keep my last name but add on my husband to be's last name. I can't wait to be a part of his family but just couldn't let go of my family's last name!!!

I am not changing my last name at all... I'm Laotian and it is very important to me to have that as my cultural identity

That was part of my reason for wanting to hyphenate.  I wanted to try to keep a part of my cultural identity.  I was raised muslim and my parents are from South America, but I was born and raised in Canada.  I want my future children to know about my culture and their heritage.

I'm so excited to see all these responses and read everyone's perspective on the issue whether it's your first or second marriage.  I feel really lucky to have a fiancee that wants this decision to be my own decision.

Keeping mine. My last name is unique and I dislike the idea of my established identity “disappearing” simply because I’m getting married.

 

My FH isn’t 100% on board with my decision but thankfully my entire family is backing me up!

    • 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.
