Changing Surname after Marriage – I Disagree

This is the first thought that came to my mind after seeing today’s prompt Disagree. Changing Surname after Marriage – I Disagree.

This concern has been in my mind for a quite a long time. These days I think about it a lot because it’s time for my marriage hahaha! This overthinking puts me in Dilemma.

On a serious note I disagree with the fact that women need to change their surname after marriage. I am not quite sure about other places but in our community people do follow this rule.

One of the weird reasons I have heard is that it proves you are married to your husband. But why do we women have to CHANGE it. We are already changing a lot of things after marriage.

I disagree to this point completely. I love my full name and I don’t want to change it.

  1. Hyphenating is an option. How does your fiance feel about this? I understand your thoughts, although I did not share them. Forty-seven years ago I changed my last name to my husband’s, and I was SO proud and happy 🙂 But more and more younger women don’t like giving up their names, and I don’t think there’s anything legally saying you have to.

  2. Not anywhere near this stage of life yet (haha!) but I can only imagine what my mom would say if I said I didn’t want to change my name. I think she might faint. Here’s hoping there won’t be any of that for you regardless of what you choose. Great, thought-provoking, post. 🙂
