I was planning to because I figured it would be easier having the same last name as the kids. After he remarried my best friend I changed my name back to my maiden name. I did not want to be associated with such trash.
I kept my married name because of the kids. After he got married to his whore she was mad that I kept the name
but I thought it was funny.
I kept mine simply because I had been going with my married name for 26 years and my business associates know me with that last name. It also saved on business cards.
The day it was final, the judge asked me one last time if I wanted to go back to my maiden name. I said, I kind of did but I wasn't sure if I wanted to complicate matters for my kids plus I admitted to being lazy and not really wanting to deal with all the other stuff, like license and ss name change yet. She laughed and said that there are no "name change" police, that I could legally have it official that day and do everything else when I was ready. She called me by my maiden name for the first time in 30 years :)
Best of both worlds, right now
Yes I did. I kept it to match my son.
NO! Didn't want ANYTHING that reminded me of him. VERY ABUSIVE!!!
I kept his last name. I didnt want to go through the hassle of changing everything over to my maiden name when Im sure one day I will remarry again and my last name will change anyway.
