BM remarried a year ago and refuses to drop DH's name
This is not the 1950s anymore where a woman is looked upon negatively for having a different last name from her kids.
I've been married to DH now for 10 years. One skid just got married (he's 20), and the other is getting a GED at 17. BM has now been remarried for one year and will not drop my husband's name!
Everyone around her, including her own kids, think she's behaving inappropriately. Her husband is none too thrilled with it, and I personally would love to kick her bloody ass. It is taking a lot of wherewithal for me to keep from getting very nasty about this.
Do you guys think this is pretty screwed up? It is not like BM has any college degree or professional credentials in the other name, either. She has a GED.
DH is going to have another talk with the husband. We just found out she had been lying to us about her intent to change it.
I think she is doing this to keep her mits on her association with DH.
Her boundary issues are starting to rear their ugly heads again!
