Do you think its a big deal for a woman to keep her maiden name?

I looked it up and apparently some people dont like the idea of a woman keeping her maiden name, but I dont see the big deal. What do you think?

Updates:
I mean I know its a traditional thing, but if it the roles were switched and the tradition was that guys had to change there last names, I still won't think its a big deal. I just dont understand why its important to change your last name.

  • I don't think it's that important, as long as the child doesn't get a hyphenated last name.

    It would annoy me if she was pushy about it, saying out of the blue, for instance, "Just so you know, I am NOT taking your last name." I would be perfectly willing to accept if she simply started by saying, "I'd like to talk to you, I like my last name and would like to keep it."

  • It tells me she has an entitlement problem and a chip on her shoulder. Honestly the first thing that comes to mind when I see a hyphen in a married couples last name is difficult woman and probable divorce in the future.

  • I'd never marry a girl who wouldn't change her name

    • Why?

    • I see it as the female equivalent to an engagement ring.

    • Not every girl wants a engagement ring, but I see your point.

  • My mom still uses her maiden name although she is married.
    In a sense, I see it as a way of not getting rid of your identity and trying to stay attached with who you are.

  • I guess it's just tradition to change it. I personally plan to change mine, but my half sister did not change hers so it's personal preference.
