  • It will create a really strong bond between the two of you. The fact that you share the same name is not just “paperwork” – it goes deeper and more symbolical than that. You are now one family, and sharing the same name speaks about this to the society. Of course, it is perfectly fine if you don’t want to share the husband’s name too – but if you want to keep it old-school, this is one of the best ways to achieve that unbreakable connection.

While a name doesn’t make you more of a family, it’s easier to explain to children that you share their father’s name, rather than explaining why you don’t share it. Surely, you can raise your children knowing you don’t share your husband’s name – but the truth is that it’s easier to go along with the tradition.
