    Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    Stole this topic from another board, but interested to see opinions here on women who either hyphenate their last name after marriage or keep their own.

    I say not worth marrying. What say you?

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    Are you looking for all women in general....or do you want to look from a cultural aspect too?

    Most Asian women keep their name, but their children get their husband's name.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    I think you're making a gross overgeneralization. There are a lot of reasons to hyphenate or keep their name. That said my wife took my name and I'm happy about it.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    I dont happen to like it, but I guess it depends on reasoning. I think the kids should get the fathers name for sure.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    My girlfriend of three years threw it out there that she wanted to hyphenate/keep her last name. I then told her that I wouldn't be the push over husband that let's her do it. I think she's changed her mind since. Plus, she'd be missing out on a last name that rhymes with her first name.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    I'm fine with it in certain situations like the woman is the president of a company, politician, etc where keeping the name is a smart financial move. For nearly everyone else I think it's kind of annoying. I know it's wrong but whenever I meet a woman that hyphenates I immediately think *****.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    Some professional women keep their last names as they have built their reputations on their name or have become published in their name. I wouldn't pass up on a girl/woman for that reason.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    Wouldn't have bothered me any if my wife would've wanted to do that. That said, it does seem like the women that do it are a specific type (already mentioned).

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    The better question is what do you think when the husband then hyphenates his name to match what his wife did. I had a guy that worked for me do such a thing. I found it a bit odd.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    My wife wanted to change her last name when we first met, her dad is a dbag. As for the question, its a kick in the stones in my opinion.

    Re: Women who hyphenate or keep last name after marriage

    I took my husband's name, but have a really good guy friend who was very insistent that his wife hyphenate her name rather than just take his. It was her identity for 25 years before they met, after all.

    I don't know many spouses (men OR women) who actually still use the phrase "let him/her do it" in real life about their partners, but I guess whatever works for you.
