I'm in the process of changing after a couple of years of not - mainly now since we have moved and I've changed jobs, changed sectors etc and now is the time (or never). I like that it identifies us all as members of the same family. DH never pushed at all but I think he quietly likes it too.

Whenever I get married I'll be changing my name, either to my husbands surname or we will create a new one. I despise my fathers family,
(not my Dad just his family) so having my surname isn't important to me at all. When my parents separated I seriously considered changing to my Mums maiden name, even though she didn't.
I am still sort of considering changing my surname to Ex-DP's name, as I desperately want the same name as our child and wouldn't want our child to feel excluded when I marry and have more children, all with the same surname.

I took my husbands last name, nothing to do with expressing achievements or being disturbing lol... Just now we are married and have a family, we are a unit and for us, having a common name reflects that. And we like things uncomplicated. Not making a statement, or following a convention, just doing what works for us
