I always thought the idea of a wife taking her husband's name was out of date. When we married I asked my wife to keep her name, but she said her very Baptist mother would have a conniption if she did.

Having said that, if you're planning to have kids, they need somebody's last name, because a couple of generations of hyphenation would get out of hand. I mean poor little North would have an even rougher time if his name was North West-Adams-Kardashian-Jenner-Houghton.

Why not. I guess that is how I got my last name, my great grandfather took his wife's last name, something about a stolen pig that caused his dad and uncles to leave England abruptly and come to America.

I'd do it . Not really a big deal, it's just a name.

I know who I am, and a name doesn't define me.

NCalHippie, did your ancestors ever settle in Arkansas? There is a creek west of Searcy called Hog Thief Creek.

Sorry for the de-rail.

Not that I know of but who knows. I do know that someone traced the family back to Tennessee.

Since I have all girls, and very successful business, I have given this a little thought. What kind of son in law would I be getting that would just give up his name for money?

I could see it if his dad was a serial killer or named Clinton or Obama.

Would you be willing to take the last name?
Nope, he should have tried a little longer for sons. If he can't accept the tradition of taking the man's last name and accepting his SIL for who he is, he can stick his business.

Maybe he's testing him to see if he's a "Nancy" and willing to compromise when he shouldn't......never mind, that's something I would do.

I'm glad my wife and FIL have accepted me and the traditions of traditional western marriage. I'm not sure she would have it any other way though. My wife may dis-own her father if he were to put that condition on me.

The last time I remarried, the woman (who I’m still married to) asked if I wanted her to take my last name. I told her it was up to her and she did. I get the feeling she wondered if I thought she was good enough (as if I was some kinda royalty or something). I was honored she took my name but I woulda married her even if she wanted to keep her maiden name. When you truly love someone these kinda games are irrelevant. As they say, “Let no man put asunder”.

BTW, I do feel responsible to provide (and protect) my family. I know this is what The Lord expects.

WoW! The chauvinist answers here. Can't we be more flexible and analytical?

Anything is possible. I know a gent who did this, but he couldn't understand he was using an alias and needed to petition the state district court for a name change.

I'd need some photos of:
- Her
- her boat
- her dog
- her home
- her cabin
- last 2 1040s
- bank statements
- investment statements
- FIL's will

Being female, I didn't vote, but a guy taking a his wife's last name just seems...weird.

I took both of my wives names (away from them) and gave them back after the divorces.

I'm remarried, we both kept our last names. I just figured that I married her, not her assets.

Perhaps it's a stereotype but I've found that women with hyphenated last names tend to be very unpleasant.

My last name is ten letters long and very rare. If you were to hear it you would never forget it. My entire name is 18 letters in all and that is without the Jr. added to it, and I used to joke that I was in tenth grade before I learned to spell it. And I absolutely hate it. So if I married someone who's name I liked better, you damn right I would change my name to hers. In a heart beat.

So your name is ******** **********?

ETA: Damn. The SB language filter got all of it.

Would you be willing to take the last name?
I actually answered no to the poll, but in this circumstance (if I got along really well with my FIL) I would consider it. This really isn’t “will you take your wife’s last name when you get married.”
