Do You Have to Take Your Husband’s Last Name?

Traditional wedding and marriage-related concepts are slowly changing, as society heads towards a more equalitarian point of view. However, it is up to each couple whether or not they choose to go with the trend or stick with the more traditional views on marriage.


For instance, if you are among the many brides-to-be wondering if you have to take your husband’s last name, you should know that this decision pertains to you and your future spouse – and to nobody else.

What are some of the things to keep in mind when it comes to this? Read on and find out more.

  • You don’t have to take your husband’s last name. But it is frequently thought to be easier this way when it comes to the raising children in the future (for instance, when going on trips, it will be easier for you to have the same name). Furthermore, many women see this as a way to show the world that they and the men they love have become a family.
  • You may have your own reasons not to take your husband’s name. For example, if you have made a name for yourself and if you want people to still recognize you by your old name, it is more than acceptable not to take your husband’s name.
  • Some ladies also choose to merge the two names together. Most often, this is the perfect “compromise” between keeping your name and taking your husband’s name as well and it also works quite alright if you want to create a special monogram for your family too.
