    I would (and did) go back to my maiden name asap. If I don't want to be his partner anymore, then I don't want myself associated with him. I would want my own identity back.

    My DH's ex wife has kept his name...and has repartnered and had another baby.
    The only reason I think she has kept it is to be the same as their son they had together. (Or she's still desperately in love with him and hopes that one day they'll get back together!) Mwhahahahahaha.
    I seriously couldn't give 2 hoots as DH changed his name to mine when we got married! She's welcome to it!

    The fact that I would have the same surname as his "new" wife, which would undoubtedly annoy her, would delight me thoroughly...but I'm a b!tch like that.
    ^^this! Same

    No way. My husband and I are separated and I reverted to use of my maiden name almost immediately. Although, I never did like his surname and regretted taking it, which may have played a role in how rapidly I reverted back...but I still would have changed back nevertheless.

    I think I would change it back. My mum kept her married name after her and my dad got divorced.

    I changed my name back the same day we'd separated - but I didn't have kids to the ex. I still have my birth name now so it wouldn't matter if MOTH n I separated

    No I wouldn't. Its my childrens name and it's my name, this is my identity now. Even if i repartenered I wouldn't change it again, I can't keep changing my name just because of who I'm with, my identity isn't completely dependant on a man.

    I don't know. I prefer my maiden name, and my sister recently changed hers back when he got divorced, though the kids obviously still have their dad's name. But my mum didn't, and neither did my dad's first wife. I think they both kept it because they had kids with that surname... I don't even know if my mum would change it if she got married again, she's been married twice, so three surnames is probably enough for anyone

    I don't honestly know... I suspect I'd keep it as my current last name has no special meaning and I'd likely have children with that name.. But it would probably depend on how we separated etc
