Thread: Which surname would you use?
August 20th, 2013 11:33 PM #31
I say hyphenate. I chose hers-his as a matter of tradition, but really, just go with what sounds best.
I've also heard of people switching the last name back and forth between kids. Kid 1 gets his, kid 2 gets hers, etc.
I agree with augusta_lee. He doesn't get total rights over the kid. It's half yours too, let her or him have both your names!
BTW, my bf and I are planning to get married (because of the benefits of it... and I want a pretty dress) and we're coming up with our own surname. Even if we weren't, I wouldn't take his name. He has said many times he doesn't care if his kids or I had his last name.
Ultimately, everybody's decision is their own, and I'm extremely disappointed with everyone demanding (whether they were "friendly" or not) that you go out and get married. What has worked for them is great, but that doesn't mean it'll work for you, and they should respect that. This has not been my experience with the berries the times I've posted and I'm surprised, and again, disappointed. Good luck in your decision.no kids yet, not trying... just a name lover with an ever-changing list, an amazing bf and lots of dreams for the future!
