    Default wife's last name when marrying and then kids last names

    What do you think is the right way?

    Long time, very few women with hyphenated last name and it could be a guess they were feminists. For kids, it used to be from divorced parents is a good guess.

    Today lots of people with hyphenated name. So you can make no assumptions.

    What do you guys think? Anyone have a hyphenated last name? You like it or not?

    And what you do when two people get married who each have hyphenated last name? What do you do with 4 last names?

    I wouldn't mind so much if my wife wanted a hyphenated name, but I'd want the kids to have my name, and I'd prefer if my wife took my name as well.

    I voted wife and kids take husband's last name.

    I wouldn't take the wife's name, not hyphenated or anything unless the last name combo was too awesome to pass up, like King-Hakkola or something, it has a good ring to it. I'd totally intro myself to people as King-Hakkola.

    I don't know any girls with that last name though.

    Fuck there's no option here. If she doesn't want your last name she can fuck herself - also unless the father fucks off there's no reason for the children to take the mothers last name.

    Are you guys all students on a budget or something?

    My lunch tab is that much for two people.

    I think the wife should take the husbands name and kids should take the same name. If there were pre existing kids, they should keep the last name they previously had.

    This is the option I'd suggest -- but it's not really my call on the first one (what she does with her last name).

    Wife taking her husband's name upon marriage is too old fashioned for me to endorse. It's not even done in many parts of the world. Off the top of my head some places that I can think of where a wife seldom takes her husband's name are Quebec, China, Belgium, Iran, Brazil, and pretty much all Islamic countries outside of South Asia (I think). I'm sure there are many more that I'm missing.

    All places I wouldn't want to live in. Thanks for the extra reason.

    This is what I would go with. Personally, if I got married and my wife wanted to keep her name I'd be fine with it as long as the kids got my name (at least until they were old enough to decide on their own). My only concern would be if the kids were traveling with mom and the names in the passports didn't match, that might cause a bit of unnecessary hassle. Hyphenated last name might alleviate that.

    Wife gets the husbands name and their kids get the husbands name. The Dad is the boss.

    What if the father has a shitty last name, it's almost cruel to make the kids take a bad last name.
    I like cars.

    My wife took my last name and our kids have have the same. I don't think paperwork should be an excuse as there really isn't that much to do

    That, and sometimes you might need to just scrap both names and come up with something new (as mentioned earlier)
