  • I certainly did. Especially since I knew we wanted to start a family together. I want my children to have my same last name.

  • I did even though I wanted to hyphenate it. We got into a huge arguement about it and I finally decided it wasnt worth the battle. So I ended up just taking his last name and dropping mine. But I am still sad about it and if I could go back and do it again, I would hyphenate it.

  • I took his name, I wanted my children to have the same last name as myself and their daddy! I love him, so I was thrilled to have his name!

  • That was the sole reason for getting married. We had been living together and were both perfectly fine with that (we had performed a non-legal ceremony) until we decided to have kids. I told him that the kids would have my last name and if he wanted that to be his too then we had to legally get married so we did.

  • Yes, but I am thinking of adding a hyphen to it to make the krabapple. Just kidding.

  • Yeah, but only because his last name was way cooler then my maiden name (kidding). Its always been what I was raised around for the new wife to take the husbands lat name. But if I meet a women that happened to keep her maiden name, or hyphen (sp) the two names, I honestly don't think too much about it. As far as I am concerned its just as normal now a days as it is too take the husbands last name.
