Would you take your partner's surname if you got married?

Would you take your partner's surname or would you keep your own if you got married?

I know it is considered the 'norm' in hetero***ual relationships, but what is your stance on the topic if you were to get married?

I took my husbands name because I like the tradition. Additionally, we adopted so it feels nice for the 3 of us to have the same name.

My last name is Toole...  So I would absolutely take that very hypothetical person’s last name 

Your wife doesn’t have to do anything she doesn’t want to 

I got married last jan and just cant bring myself to change my name. It feels like letting go of my identity. Im not sure why because I'm pretty traditional with stuff like that and a huge hopeless ro

Yes I would in a heartbeat! I hate my last name with a passion. I have a very Latino/Hispanic last name Her....z but if/when I married my partner I will be taking his last name Rod...z which is a lot better then mine! l

I am a gay woman and when me and my wife got married she took my last name. So when we got our two children we all have the same family name. It is so nice and it makes it easier as a family. Very romantic to. We live in Stockholm Sweden so it is usual and is most of the time accepted. We also named our children with a different gender middle name that has now become legal in Sweden. So our daughter has a male middle name from grandpa and our son is named Madonna as a middle name. Sorry for not naming him Britney but if we get a third child it is a given. I like when love have the same name!

If I took my partner’s last name I would have three first names :rihclap_rihanna_clapping_applause_yes_yas:

That's why i hate my surname, it's also someones first name. 

I would change my surname, but he needs to have a better surname. :yaknow_britney_xfactor_X_factor_talk_tell_chat_you_know:

I like the idea of one of us taking each other’s last name. It feels romantic and part of becoming “one” as you do in marriage. But the first names of me and my boyfriend don’t really go well with the other’s last name. :awkblink_britney_awkward_blinking:


Also, I think I’d rather take his name, but I don’t like the idea of “losing my identity” somewhat. I’d be happy if he took my name, but it kinda feels weird because I’m not close with my family anyways, so why would I want him to take on my family name?

After typing all this out, it’s looking like no name changes will be happening :gagasmile_smirk_lady_pink:

Or what about doing what Neil Patrick Harris and his husband did? They hyphenated both of their last names to Burtka-Harris. I feel like that’s a good middle ground and could also be a good idea for any future kids. Both my partner and I are very fond of our surname so it’ll be a tough call when the time comes about what name the kids will take :orangu_orangutan_ape:
