    • I don't believe anyone is an extension of another person... I didn't say that.

      But anyways, I have to disagree on your belief that women are more important to kids than men. That's just plain cultural bullshit right there. Most modern dad's are just as involved in their children's lives as the mothers, as they should be.

    • @Sara413 I used to be a single dad in the firat year of my baby , while it's cultural so wrong where I live, but that was my choice
      , so I'm not following culture

      I didn't say woman is more important, I just pointed that they are not the same

  • I have never wanted to change my name when I get married, and that hasn't changed since meeting my partner. Fortunately, we don't plan to have kids so that's a non- issue. I think if we hypothetically did have kids I would still want to keep my name but we would have to find some compromise in terms of the kids' last names. I don't like hyphenating because that gets convoluted pretty quickly over a couple generations. I'd probably just give them his last name since it's shorter and easier to spell. Save the little bastards the hassle hahaha

  • I don't mind, it's up to her. Our names are part of us for our whole lives, I wonder if I'd want it if I were a woman, so I completely understand if she doesn't wanna change hers.

  • I want her to take my last name Im traditional in that sense, or that at least our children will take my last name. Cause I'm the only boy in my family so I feel like its almost my responsibility to continue the family name.

  • I don't really care, to be honest. Like I have an Asian last name, but if a Caucasian wife which I don't have has a Western surname, I wouldn't mind using that either.

  • I never thought about it...

    Honestly, I'm not sure. It seems like a hastle to get the name change, then have to update everything/everyone about my name change.

    At the same time, I feel as if I'd almost be "obligated" to take his last name..

  • I don't know, it would depend - My grandpa is a chief of name in Ireland so I'd prefer him to take my name or at least keep both names myself. I wouldn't mind if he preferred to keep his name and to take his name in a combination with mine but I would find it weird if he was already reluctant to that idea in the first place. This ain't the 1950s after all.

  • If I wanted to get married, I would keep my name. As much as I hate my last name, I feel that if I take my husband's last name I will lose my identity.
    I know this doesn't make sense to other people, but that's how I feel.

  • Yea because I wanna rid of my last name ASAP. I don't want connection to my dad.
    If I wasn't about to turn 18 my step dad would adopt me and I'd take his last name.

  • So many marriage Q's about surnames 😜

    Nah I won't take his name. Doesn't mean I love him less it's just that in my culture we don't do that stuff. And it's my name I love it. I was born with it. It's mah identity. I'm see the dude will understand. And if he doesn't..

    Well then he can Marry his father. Hahahha 😂😂
