QUESTION OF THE WEEK 7-25-11
Should a woman keep her maiden name when she marries?
(See if this one question doesn't open a whole can of worms. Should the man take her name? Should the parents and children have a hyphenated name? Should the child always be given the man's last name? And what about same sex unions? Should everyone reaching the age of majority have the option to register their own chosen name at no charge? Should there be a law about uniform naming? Etc.,etc., etc.)
Personally, if I were a young person marrying for the first time, I would keep my maiden name and give the children the father's last name.
