His family doesn't want me to take DF last name

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I'm getting married May 14th.  We had lunch with his family today, and they brought up the wedding. At lunch, it was MIL, SIL, BIL, FIL, DF, and me. 

They all have (as they call them) "hispanic names" and my name doesn't fit. Actually, i don't think its my name, i think its ME. I have blonde hair and blue eyes, and they think its weird that i would be white and have a hispanic sounding last name. I never really thought of not taking his name, and i still plan on taking his last name. But they all agreed (besides DF) that i shouldn't. 

Last name is De La Cruz


Alayna De La Cruz

I get along fine with his family, but to me this seems more like its against me then it is caring about a last name..

What do you think? I'm still taking his last name. Our son has his last name :)

If I were you I'd think twice before marrying into that family.

Not their choice, and pretty darned racist of them to suggest you shouldn't take his name just because you don't look hispanic.

You think they would be offended if you didnt take his last night. Sounds personal.
