IMO she should also be a Ms not a Mrs
Exdh's wife doesn't have anything to do with me and im pretty sure she'd have no idea what my last name is.. Exdh chose to leave and have nothing to do with DS. DS was 1 when that happened.

Our first child (DD) was born before we were married and DH and I decided to hyphenate her name so that if in the future something happens and we separated then she would have both last names and because of this when we got married I kept my maiden name and when DS1 and DS2 were born we hyphenated their names as well. A friends DD had her ex's last name and when she got married her and her ex both agreed and legally changed their DD's last name to a hyphenated name so she had both her mothers married name and fathers last name.

And with all that said, my ex... Isn't someone I could ever see getting married. Unless a partner literally forces him in to it.
In any case, I no longer see it as HIS surname, I see it as my daughters, and that's the name I'm taking. Her surname, not his :-)
Also, I don't see myself ever getting married or having more kids, but if by any chance I do, I will keep my daughters surname, and any further children will either have our (my daughter and my) surname or a hyphenated name. Again, I see it as my daughters name that I am taking, and not my exes :-)

My mum took my dads name when they got married and all of us kids also had that surname. When they divorced she kept the name and just put Ms. instead of Mrs.

Gah this is exactly why I don't want to change my name to my husband to be. Cos his exwife hasn't changed her name, and I don't want to be known as the same as her. Hard to explain but it sucks trying to please everyone, at the same time trying to do what YOU want also. For the time being I have decided to stick with my current surname which is my XH lol but same as kids. I think I will review later down the track maybe when kids are a little older.
ETA -keeping in mind it is painful to do a name change when you older in life, too many things haha
