When I got married my dad suggested I should change my name to his to show my commitment to him.

Well 24-25 years later we are heading towards divorce. I’ve been thinking and thinking and logistically it’s a nightmare to change it back.

It doesn’t change who I am? I’m not going to be changed back to who I was before the marriage? It doesn’t change anything.

It’s more pain and no gains. Which to me is ridiculous. So there you have it. I’m going to keep his name.

Only difference is I’ll change my Mrs to a Ms. An easy fix. I know it’s not conventional but then I never was.
