  • Why would they care? That is a part of your life. I never had any problems when I started dating. Its who I am now.

  • Why would it be a problem? If the man that you are dating now has issues with the fact that you were married at one time before you to meant then he's not a very healthy person to be are you or your children. That would raise an alarm for me that he has trust issues and also has jelacay issues as well.

  • I went back to my name the day the papers were signed! Why would I want to keep my exes name??

  • Yep, it was a problem. I kept my last name from my first marriage...when I met my now husband, he had a problem with my last name...I guess its because it was the name of another man and it was a reminder to him.
