Could be. I hadn’t thought of that reason. Maybe she feels like her married name matches her first name more than her maiden name did.

Carrying the last name of the wrong person definitely can feel like a burden in life!
Do you think it’s strange to keep the name if they never had children together?
no, can be many other reasons. Just thinking it is nicer/suits one better than the previous name is valid in my book.
To me, it feels like that would be worth it, instead of being constantly reminded of a bad relationship.
If it was a BAD marriage, then absolutely it would be worth it. Outside of that... to me it isn't worth it.
I haven’t known of anyone who got a divorce from a good marriage.
I mean abusive vs. "It 'ain't workin' anymore".
It it were me, I’d do whatever it takes to remove that constant reminder of an ex. It’s almost like having a tattoo of an ex lol.
Lol…. keeping after she married a new guy would definitely be a problem!
Personally l wouldn’t want to be constantly reminded of a bad relationship.
Maybe. I just couldn’t imagine being constantly reminded of a painful situation.
Also, if she had kids with him, the last name identifies her as their mother.
Yes, it's weird for me. But I guess she has to do some paperwork to get it back, so I can understand if a woman prefers to keep husband's name.
Yes, I'm just wondering why a woman would choose to keep the last name from the marriage instead of changing it.
