    Why I took on my wife's last name after marriage

     

    I got married over the winter break in 2015 and the wedding and honeymoon were wonderful. One thing not many people knew was that after marriage, I would be taking my wife's last name.

     

    This wasn't an easy decision to make. We discussed all of our options at length. We considered making no change, but wanted our future children to share our name. We talked about both taking each other's name or hyphenating. We discussed her taking my name or me taking hers. We even went as far as trying to make up a new last name.
