My son is 7. He is from a previous relationship. I got married about 9 months ago and am pregnant now with my husbands first child. He is going to have his dads name. My seven year old has his dad's name. He asked/told us that he wants his name to be the same last name as my husbands, our sons, and mine. At the time, I said that we would wait till he was older to make sure that is something he wanted. I'm conflicted about the whole thing. I don't want him to feel left out because we have the same name and he doesn't. But I don't want him to resent it later either. So if I decided to change it, what age should I consider doing so. When my parents got married my step brother and sister had there names changed. My step sister was about 10 my step brother was about 7. They have never met their fathers. My son knows his dad, although his dad rarely comes around. I don't know what is "right". Please help.

That is sooo cute.. He wants also fit with the rest of the new family!.. He still young to make a serious decision.. If I was you I would try to make him feel special on other ways... and later on in life if he still wants to do it, he will be able to... Good luck!
