He can still marry you, but you don't get the hassle of changing your name on driving licence, bank cards etc. That's brilliant!
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.
It's great that you don't have to change your last name, but you two will be missing out on the tax-related benefits of being married.
"You know that means I can't kiss you, because we have the same last name and that would be incest"
That is actually quite convenient, no getting used to a different last name or anything, he still should marry you if that's what you want.
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...
