Would you let her keep your last name?? Posted on 07-27-2004

Ok, we all know that in divorce, many times the woman keeps her ex-husband's last name. I wanted to get a census on how everyone feels about this. Would you want your ex-wife keeping your family name even though you aren't together anymore??? personally I wouldn't want some girl walking around sharing my name like that if we weren't together. It sounds like there could be some type of security risk with that. Like she could access certain things with various accounts, etc. or something. *in his creator voice* "I made thou, and I shall take thee Awayyy!!" :lol:

As I female I really don't have an answer to this question....but I think some women hold onto it b/c of their children. When applying for things etc..when children are young you have alot to go throught I guess. So some choose to keep. Ex. me and my mom have the same last name (my mom's maiden name) my siblings have their fathers name and it becomes a hassle...Example its a hassle for me when I used to have to pick them up no matter what I'd have to go thru so much crap b/c our last names are different. And the kids tend to be bothered by the fact moms name is different from theirs

I personally would keep my married name. You've done so much with that name why change it to spend more money getting new passports, licenses its just to much of a hassle. IF you have children depending on how old they are it's just easier tokeep their name

I AM SOOOO HAPPY THIS TOPIC CAME UP. I was talking to someone about this the other day...and this is the EXACT reason why I am retaining my last name when I get married...I do not want my husband's last name whatsoever. As much as I hope I wont ever be divorced, nowadays anything can happen, so you have to sometimes prepare llike it will. My whole thing is, Ill be damned if my ex husband has the nerve to ask for his last name back, because it is his... I feel like he cant take sumthing back that was never his, so if I keep my own name I wont have to worry about that. Plus in high school I was talking to a newlywed teacher who retained her last name when she got married...and she told me that my last name is WHO I AM, and no man cant EVER take that away. And since that conversation I have always decided to keep it and believe highly in that. Like my mom for example she has her maiden name and married name hyphenated....but I dont even wanna do that. My name will always be Jamila R. H****. When I was younger I use to say how much I cant wait to change my last name to my husbands...but as I have matured and gotten older I realized that direction isnt for me. And me retaining my birth last name is sumthing Ima let my fiancee know upfront, so he doesnt be surprised or offended that I keep my last name.

the man cant ask for the last name back and even if he does, what's to stop the girl from just changing her name again. i mean, people do change their names all the time.
