My name retains my identity, I felt like iI am going to get somebody identity by automatically just taking my husband’s surname. When I told my husband about my decision, he disagreed and claimed, it is not accepted in Africa and insisted that a wife should be ready to leave her family name as soon as she gets married- I told him that was archaic. A woman should still have some form of identity as against just fitting her life with the man. I finally decided to go with both my maiden and spouse name.
The society has somehow made women looked so insignificant yet no body can exist without the women.It doesn’t matter what the society take women for- We all know that they can never live without us.
Would you change or leave your family name after you get married?
