I'd rather we both hyphenate both our last names.
He wants me to take his last name, said that any kids we have must have his last name, and told me that he won't take my last name in any form (because neither of us like my dad).
He also said there is no point in getting married if I'm not going to take his last name.
I'm not really opposed to taking his last name other than I want to know why he wants me to (which he refuses to tell me) and I don't want the same last name as his mother (she flirts with him, uses him, talks badly about him, and expects him to be a mama's boy (he used to be one, but got over it when we got engaged)).
I'd appreciate a guy's opinion on why he might not want to tell me the reason he wants me to take his last name. I'd also apreciate opinions from guy's and gal's on why I should take his last name, hyphenate, or keep my last name.

I like the idea of the girl keeping her last name. It is her identity so why mess with it! I would not be marrying her for her last name and I would rarely use it, so what is the big deal?
It is tradition, but traditions are not laws - they are just guidelines.
If she wanted to keep her last name, I would have no issues! There are much more important things in a relationship to worry about ;)3
