I understand what you're saying, and the finality of the new last name is great! The process of getting it done, however, is a pain in the ass. I've been married for 1 1/2 years now, and STILL have to use my maiden name in some cases.

#88 Maybe you smell it on yourself. I have three friends who are not related in anyway with the same last names. It is not very rare to have the same last name as someone you know, especially if it is a common last name.

I always thought it was pretty unfair that women are expected to change their last names when married. I'd want to keep my name but I would also want to have the same last name as any kids I would have, so to compromise I'm trying to convince my boyfriend that it would be a good idea to change both of our last names to something really cool so that way it's fair haha. But of course he doesn't want to change his name either.

I dated a guy with the same last name as me and had a similar problem. He thought people mistook us for siblings too often so he didn't want to pursue anything further. People get hung up on the strangest things...

If he's constantly being accused of incest I could see how it would get old fast, I don't really understand how it would be an issue as long as you're not somewhere like school though, normally people don't know last names.
