Would you take your partner's surname if you got married?

I got married last jan and just cant bring myself to change my name. It feels like letting go of my identity. Im not sure why because I'm pretty traditional with stuff like that and a huge hopeless romantic.

I'm not really a fan of my last name, personally. I don't feel connected to it. If anything I've been thinking of legally changing it on my own and then my hypothetical partner can then take my new last name. :eyes_britney_laugh:

But I urge most of you to keep your last names if you're happy with it. I don't want to have to point you to the divorce rates in your individual countries.

My mom didn't take my dad's name.

When I was born, I ended up taking my mom's surname. My dad's surname ended when he had my siblings and I. However, I don't think I'd take my partner's name. I'm a little too selfish to change it, I like mine. My future husband can take mine haha
