To Change or Not to Change Your Surname after Marriage


I have often had the conversation with my girl friends about when we get married, would be change our name or not? Back in the day it was traditional to change your name but nowadays more brides are choosing to keep their names. Out of all my girlfriends, it was surprising to see that I was the only one who wanted to change my last name! One of my friends, because she is a doctor, has to pay quite a lot just to change her name from Dr X to Dr Y. It’s funny how things have changed so much over the years in regards to marriage and wedding traditions. So when this infographic came by way, I wanted to share the latest stats with you.
