Is anyone else having a hard time with changing the last name? I want to keep my maiden and hyphenate his, and it seems to be a huge issue for him. He wants me to just completely change it. So much so that I'm thinking of postponing the wedding. :smileysad:
He talks of tradition while I share my maiden last name with my son. Changing it completely makes me feel like I'm turning my back on my son instead of joining families. I was supposed to make the payment to the officiant today and we were getting married october 30. It would have been just us and my two kids from previous relationship.
