This week a young women share with us her confusion. She wants to honor her father by retaining his surname after marriage but her husband will not hear of it.
I have been married for close to two years now but i still use my father’s surname.
During the wedding preparation, my father sent a text message to me telling me how he will love me to retain his name after my marriage, he suggested how i can combine my husband”s name with his own and even gave examples of people that have done such.
My husband will not hear of it! he said he has intentionally not imposed it on me for two years because he wants to see when i will go ahead and change my surname to his without being forced.
I am the last in the family of six. I have four sisters and one brother.
I am caught between my dad and my husband.
