An article from Oprah.com (posted on CNN)
asks the question of why women still change their name. It argues that it's a change of identity. Furthermore, it contends that name changes don't make families more connected. The article says that today, roughly 20 percent of American women don't change their name for marriage. What are your thoughts? Is changing your name an outdated tradition? Would you change your name after you got married? It's interesting--if you've been on Facebook lately--at how many women include their maiden name so they can be identified with friends from their former life (do you do that?). Maybe social media is birthing a new modern marriage tradition. Let us know your thoughts.
