Nope. It ties her to her son. She is not on my radar so it doesnt bother me.
I think SM did at the beginning but if it bothered her much after that, I never heard about it (which would be unusual). xMIL kept her last name (same as XH's, her DSs, same as mine) even though she and xFIL divorced when BF was in pre-school. I didn't see a reason to change it either. XH was happy I didnt' (not sure why). xFIL was happy I kept it (he said I'll always be part of the family because of the boys, and he and xMIL have remained friends through all these years, so why couldn't he and I do the same?). xMIL was happy I kept it. I kept it mostly because I had 2 young boys (early elementary and toddler) when the divorce happened and I did NOT want any confusion in the schools where the boys were concerned. I also have no attachment to my maiden name so I didn't want to go back to that. I like my formerly married name, I love his family (it's just him I'd like to throw off a bridge ;) ) and so I kept it.
If the boys had been older (both school age at least) I may not have kept it, I don't know.
no, because she didnt lol however HER maiden name is a very common Hispanic name that is only one letter off from his so she didnt change back very far!
i have my kids fathers last name. its been my name for almsot 20 years. it did used to bug SO. idk if it bothered any of my kids dad's SO's.
DH and BM were never married, thankfully.
Quoting bertaboo1: The only time it bothered me was when she had her baby with her current bf. She sent a pix txt of the childs insurance card to dh showing the chils last name as his. Said he has a girl and she is sueing for child support. Yeah...that little joke didnt go over well...
