    How many husbands and wives share the same last name ?? If not, any particular reason(s) ??

    Could it be a business move....... perhaps the wife does not wanna lose her identity....... not married by law........ or just don't give a rat's behind.

    This has me wondering about values or lack thereof or just a better understanding of people and the times.

    My friend's wife didn't change hers. I didn't understand why, seems confusing to me. If it helps you understand, I don't wear a ring either, Im afraid of it getting stuck on something or getting my hand pulled into a machine

    I've got a coworker who combined their last names when they were married. Took half from one and half from the other and made a new last name.

    It may depend on the woman. Say her last name is Kahlo and if she got her PhD or doctrine while she was unmarried, gets married and takes her husbands last name (Rivera), she's no longer Dr. Kahlo, she's Dr. Rivera... But her husband or that name didn't go through that whole process or journey of her being a Dr. This may also reflect on her identity. She grew up Kahlo, her identity is Kahlo, she should stay Dr. Kahlo. What were to happen if they were to get a divorce for good reason? If he passed away, maybe gets remarried... I think it's fine for her to stay Dr. Kahlo and not take on any husbands last name.

    I think if a woman wants to keep her last name (doctrine or not) that's up to her.... Some families may see it as passing on the family name but growing up Asian (or from any immigrant family) your last name was most likely given to you because it sounds better, spelled better, or was easier to best identify you... So honestly, does it really matter?

    I'm not sure what I would do once I get married. I have a family name I want to keep and be able to pass down as well, why should it only be the husbands name that gets passed down and kept?

    Wife took mine, and we each get to pick one name when kiddos are born. Keeps things fun, trying to play off of the wife's choice of name with my own. It was somewhat of a battle to get the wife to take my last name, but since she still had her dead beat dad's last name, she finally caved. I'll say I respect a woman's right to keep their last name, and it wasn't a deal breaker for me/us, just what I wanted and she understood that.
    Same as others on the ring. I had a carbide one for a bit, but kept setting it down and worried about scratching panels, or bending it shut on my finger. I think I know where it is...

    That's kinda the whole point here. If it doesn't matter one way, then it doesn't matter the other way. It's just a Friday afternoon fun discussion on who has what and why ??

    No one is gonna be graded and no followup test, later.​

    She took my name. Why she said yes in the first place is a complete mystery to me.

    Yes my wife wanted to do that also. Her last name was Cox and with my last name as Best. Her father’s name was Big, and her nickname in high school was Fonda.

    I chose to hyphenate my maiden name and married name. In hindsight, I wish I didn't, because now my full name is very long. I generally just go by my married name, but when we refinanced our house, I had to sign my entire legal full name like 30 times. Hand cramp.
