    Falc, I swear we already had this poll sometime within the last 8 months. Same for your cheating thread. I think you're on repeat doll :rofl:

    That being said, yes I plan to. It's part of the whole marriage bit for me.

    If by some act of God I happen to be very well established in my career when we get married then I'll change my name legally but *may* not professionally if it turns out to be a colossal pain in the ass. I'll never hyphenate.

    Fully plan on not being that far professionally though :rofl: and I really want to take his name so voted for #1

    I'm not a woman however I gotta put out there I don't believe in marriage. Yes it's the ultimate commitment to "prove" one's love to another; I would think that staying with someone, and not getting married, proves that point with a much greater emphasis. Not to mention women still tend to take a man for all he's worth in divorce, and with the divorce rate being at 50% (isn't it like 75% these days) there's a good chance you're not staying together. Then, LP makes a good point with her professional career. Women these days make as much, if not more, than men but still get all the good benefits in divorce? To hell with that. There is very few reasons to tie the not these days, especially since both men and women tend to be filthy FILTHY whores more often than not.

    That said, if I ever found someone special enough that she convinced me to make the "commitment"... she sure as shit better take my last name.

    I know a couple that hyphenated their last names and now they share the same hyphenated last name.



    edit: Reign, divorce rate isn't quite at 75% there babe :rofl: Don't give up the ship yet :rofl: :rofl:

    You're probably right. I'm watching Scrubs tho and Turk and Carla are discussing taking his last name so I had to ask the Vag :mamoru:

    Dude you're right, the more I think about it the more I don't want to get married.

    But if I do, she has to take my last name.

    I don't know about elsewhere but in Quebec couples who are not married have a greater chance of separating. Marriage can be an indicator of commitment or maybe it's such a pain in the ass to get a divorce that people stay together :mamoru:

    There shouldn't be an option on this.
    It is mandatory for women to take the husband's last name.

    I probably wouldn't do it, but I'm not really opposed to it either. None of your options apply to me, I just like having my own last name. :dunno:

    Thats sort of what I did. Officially its just his name, but Im using my maiden name for a while.

    I would have felt weird if he took my name.

    I will be hyphenating.

    Unless by some reason I'm married by May 2011, marriage will happen AFTER I'm professionally established Any kids can have his last name. It's all good with me.

    Why is that? I'd never make my last name my middle name. Ever.

    Well I don't really like my last name so I would love to change it whenever I get married, and hopefully his will be better than mine. :rofl:

    :rofl: Noo... I wouldn't put it like that. I'm just saying that I have no problem changing my last name because I'm not really a fan of it.

    Cuz that's how it's done.

    Woman's maiden name becomes her new middle name.

    Her old middle name is dropped.

    Man's last name becomes her new last name.

    I guess "that's how it's done" cuz that's how my parents and everyone else I know's parents did it :dunno:

    I always thought that's how it worked.


    An acceptable alternative is her dropping her old last name, keeping her middle name, and taking the husbands last name. I wouldn't care if she did that, either.

    I've never heard of that ever. I don't like it because it sounds like it's hyphenated and I don't like the sound of those.
