60 / 100

Sharing the last name certainly has its benefits in a marriage, especially when expanding a family, travelling to far-flung destinations, and for convenience purposes, sharing joint expenses and liabilities. While in the past, tradition dictated a bride take her partner’s last name upon marriage, societal patterns are increasingly adjusting to modern norms and couples are no longer following the standard mould of name changes.

Public figures are, in fact, leading the forefront of this recently adopted behaviour. Whether the couple wants equal representation in their partnership or the husband chooses to take his wife’s last name for sentimental reasons, bucking tradition and creating new rules within a partnership is a refreshing route to consider for any modern couple.
