Just wondering if anyone thinks it's odd that my husband's ex wife has chosen to keep her married name (my husband's and my last name) when she gets remarried this month. My DH and her were married for many years but she had an affair for about 3 or 4 of the last years of their marriage. She was miserable with my DH and couldn't wait to leave him and didn't even want most of their stuff. She never worked so her name has no connection to a career. They have two adult daughters close to 30 - one of whom is getting married and will change her last name at that time.
Anyway - she's marrying the man she had the affair with and is madly in love with him. The family members in my husband's family who also share this name are still very bitter towards her for how she cheated on their son/brother/nephew. Just think it's odd she'd keep my husband's name even though she couldn't wait to leave him. Seems weird that we'll both be "Mrs. ___". I had been looking forward to the day she would marry and we wouldn't have to share names. But I guess not!
