I Don’t Want to Change My Name When I Get Married – Daily Dilemma [AUDIO]
Here is today's daily dilemma for Monday, March 5th, 2012:
"My boyfriend and I are getting ready for our upcoming marriage. We’re very excited, although we’re not unlike everyone else. We have issues, but this one is big - the question is- how big? I really love my last name and I don’t want to give it up. My family is proud of it’s heritage and I have 5 other brothers. They don’t have to worry about this problem- why should I have to relinquish that little bit of family history? I can’t bring this up to my future husband. He listens to what I have to say,, and then just shrugs his shoulders and says - 'this is part of the deal - take it or leave it.' Do I honor his chauvinistic wishes and just take the name and be done with it, even though I don’t believe in this stupid tradition?"
