Feeling shittyPosted: September 23, 2007
In my opinion, keeping my own last name is indicative of me not wanting to give up myself *symbolically* to become my husband’s wife. It’s a part of my identity and why should I just be expected to give it up?
Apparently, it can also be interpreted as me just not wanting to be a part of his family, or for us to be a family unto ourselves.
And what about the children? Their lives will obviously be ruined.
So his refusal to take my name means what then?
