I always lol when someone makes a post and says "I love it", about their choice.   Duh.

I have been married twice, I have taken my husbands name both times.   I love it ;-)

I have been married for almost fourteen years.  I didn't change my name.  My kids have my husband's last name and my last name is their middle name.

I didn't want to change my last name b/c it is a very unique name, while my husband's last name is ver common.  Additionally, I had already graduated from law school and been admitted to the bar.

I just got married in January. My ssn he's been updated to my married name as has my benefits but I won't change my bills till I update my drivers license. They still show my maiden name. I wanted my husbands last name, it just completes my marriage in my eyes.

I'm keeping my name because I have a son from a previous relationship and he has my maiden name so I want to keep that connection but DF and I talked about future kids and they will carry his name so I'll just add DF's last name to mine.  I'll have 2 last names because I don't like the way it looks hyphenated.
