    Default Girl's baptism banned by judge after court battle

    http://www.news.com.au/national/mum-...-1226229754277

    They cannot hyphenate the name???

    It
    ruled against overturning orders preventing her from changing her daughter's
    surname to a hyphenated name and provided for the girl to spend alternate
    Christmases with her dad.

    I agree about the baptizing. When she is older she can make the decision for herself.

    I took mine in at 6w. It can't harm. If you believe in it then you really have to take them in. If not then how can it hurt?

    With the name how can they not allow them to hyphenate it???

    My first thoughts too. Grow up for goodness sake!
    Ex and I no longer really like each other, but we have an amicable relationship for the kids.
    We do a lot together for the kids, that includes my DH and his (exs) gf. The kids love it, and everyone else seems amazed, but Im doing for my kids, just like Id give my life for them.

    Not everyone can. Nice that you can but yeah not everyone can have that with their ex.

    I never even told the FOB that my LO would be baptised. I put her in my name only on the birth certificate. But I feel at the very least that the mother be able to use her name. To hyphenate will not take away his name but have hers as well. Why not let that happen? Baffles me.

    You have a good point re: Baptism. At least if how I read what you meant is right. I'm not religious, but I take it you are saying to someone who believes in christianity and baptism it is highly important to be baptized. And to someone who doesn't believe then what's the harm in having 'some words said, water dabbled over a child's head and ???'. If the person doesn't think it matters then what for it matter to them? - was that your point?

    I would be furious if someone baptised my child against my will. I see nothing wrong with this ruling, except the name hyphenating, having both names is only fair. How petty to take it to court though.

    That's it. I once let people "bless" me when it was religion I don't believe in or follow. They wanted to and felt it was important. To them it was important but to me it meant nothing and certainly wasn't going to hurt me for them to put a hand on my shoulder and say some words.

    I just meant that each of the parents need to grow up shareabook Didnt mean everyone should get along. My ex is a horrid, selfish man and admittedly it took me years of ignoring his often cruel stunts designed to hurt me to get to this point. After 5-6 years he figured he couldnt hurt me and gave up
