    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

    I'm not of the belief that everyone in the family have to have the same surname...

    No-one is being disrespectful, you will see that it was asked as a question

    That wasn't my question? I think if you can answer if or why your children don't have your surname, then it's easy to understand why a woman would take her husbands. Why the man and not the woman's? Lots of reasons, tradition, and respect for the tradition could be a couple of them. Most follow it in some way or another.

    I took my DHs surname because I think that it's awesome...it starts with a Z and anything that starts with Z you always have to spell out several times.
    It would have to have been a very bad surname for me to refuse to take it.

    If we ever got married (doubt it will happen) I would take his name. My surname means little to me as it is the name of my half sisters father. My mother kept his name to be the same as her kids to him and he is a jerk to put it in censored terms. I would change my name to my mothers maiden name but it feels a bit like a rejection of my brothers and sisters. No one would bat an eyelid if I change my names because of marriage though. Plus, who doesnt want to be named after a looney toon? Silvester is awesome (yes different spelling, but still awesome).

    I probably would still take his name because I would want to be the same as him and my kids. I might hyphenate to make it sound a bit better.

    Oh no, I didn't mean anybody is being disrespectful, I meant that it's a sign of respect in certain cultures. In my culture it's a huge shock not to take your husbands surname.
    Is that what you meant by the disrespectful comment? = S
    I'm confused. Never mind.

    No, I was addressing your comment about the answer being in whose name your child has (I don't really see how that matters...).

    Anyway. My youngest has my surname, my eldest has DH's.

    I suppose I have little respect for the tradition, given its roots. Each to their own.
