My fiancée and I have already agreed, even way before I actually proposed two weeks ago, that we were going to have the same surname McLellan. Her reasoning? because she doesn't like her and feels her own family name means little to her.
I've read that so-called feminists claim that this "tradition" of the bride taking the groom's surname only enlarges the gap between men and women, and causes "serious detriment to their careers when they change their names" ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-29804450 )
To be honest I've thought about taking my fiancée's name as it's more appealing than mine.
So girls, will you be keeping your surname?

I really like my surname... but I'd still want to take my future husband's. It's just special to me and symbolizes us being a team and sharing the same last name. Oh and it has nothing to do with feminism. What you're referring to is extreme feminism.5
