So my soon to be XDH and I were married for 4 years and have 2 kids (ages 2+3) together. They both have my XDHs last name. When the divorce is finalized, should I go back to my maiden name? I have a BF and our relationship is moving rather steadily. Eventually ending in marriage and kids of our own. Should I go through the hassle of changing my name back only to have to re-do all the papaerwork and such again when I remarry? Also should I keep his last name so I still have that connection with my kids or since it's gonna change anyway, does it matter? Or should I just combine the two even though it's really long?
