I personally will probably hyphenate. Not sure tho.
Guys do you care if your wife wants to hyphenate the names or keep her own name?

I certainly wouldn't force someone else to give up their name just to support some kind of messed up ego-trip of mine...
Hyphenation, or keep it; if they really want to get rid of their names, then go for that, but I don't really care if they do or not.
I kinda like my name, so I wouldn't want to give it up. Can the husband even give up their own name and take the wife's? I wonder.2

I'm not changing my name or hyphenating, i'll just keep it all together. It would be odd to write someone else's name and I have no interest in doing it at all. I don't want to "become one", i'm perfectly fine keeping my individuality and my name along with it.
I would probably not be able to marry someone who didn't respect that about me, it's way too traditional for me and traditional doesn't interest me in the slightest.
I've never understood why a man's last name is "his" but a woman's name "is her father's" and is expected to be changed.3
