After marriage, have you changed your name?  How long were you married when you changed it?  Did you remove you remove or hyphen your name?  If you haven't changed your last name why?

I have been married almost 3 years and I haven't changed my name as of yet, I plan to this summer :) super excited.

I changed it the day I got married. Wasn't sure I was going to until then, because it felt like I would be less me, and there's not really any tradition to uphold with my kind of marriage anyways. But then I did, and I have never regreted it. And I replaced my name completely, no hpyhen, but I still write my name with my old name followed by the new one sometimes

I changed it the day after we got married. I had never changed back to my maiden name after my divorce, so DH and I were ready to get rid of my ex's last name. Lol.
