My SO and I, if all goes well, plan on getting married someday. She doesn't want to change her name, and I doubt she will change her mind. I want her to change to my last name, but I respect her decision not to. However, I want our names to at least reflect our marriage. What options do I have?
Last name change options?

I have no problems with taking a guys last name. I see it as a way we're connected as one. Does she want to keep both names different or does she want you to take her's?1
You're WAAAAAY too young to be thinking about marriage. If she doesn't want too change her name get over it, it's not the dark ages whet women were passed from dad's to husbands. We have choices now. The best choice for both of you is to realize your shouldn't be thinking about marriage but rather about high school, college, living expenses, car payments, affording food, and a career before marriage. Perhaps after you live in the real world you'll know how insignificant this question is.0

My mom pretty much kept her maiden name and now it gets super confusing. Sometimes I have to explain "no they're not divorced" and it gets confusing when she has to sign certain things.1
If you love her enough to marry her then you should indeed respect her decision, it'll be the first compromise of many! lol0
