I think it's a respect thing in some people's cultures. We may have our own point of view but we need to remember that everyone is raised differently. Maybe it has been drilled into their head that taking your husbands surname is a sign of respect. People shouldn't be quick to attack. Ask questions.
Anyway, back to the point. I would take my husband surname, yes. 110%! I wouldn't care if his surname was Jollydickpleaser. I'd take it lol
