Simple question – Will you be (have you taken) taking your husband’s last name or are you hyphenating it and WHY?
Hey friends! I was discussing this with a friend the other day. Are women taking things too far???
Tell me what you think.
Will you be taking your husband’s last name or are you hyphenating it?
(Or ….Did you take your husband’s last name if you are already married?)
Personally, I thought that if you were as big as someone like Whitney Houston or similar then the public goes on forever knowing you as Whitney Houston and maybe because of several complications you go by Whitney Houston-Brown. Still, soooooo many people are coming up and don’t want to change their last name and take on the family heritage of the husband.
I have heard of one case in an African country that a friend of mine is from that the men take the woman’s family name. That has been the only instance that I have heard other than that which I am accustomed to.
So women what is the deal and men what do you think????
Should a woman take her husband’s family name?
Men…. would you be offended if your wife to be decided she wanted to keep her name?
Just innocently wondering….
