Scenario

Your boyfriend's name is Bob Smith. You and your boyfriend are getting married. He has been married before but is now, obviously, divorced from his ex-wife. She took his last name when they married, so she was known as Mrs. Smith.

When you and Bob marry, will you want to be known as Mrs. Smith? Why or why not?


(Anyone can answer, not just straight females, I don't want to exclude anyone, so if the question doesn't fit because of the genders I used, then just twist the question so you can answer. :-) )


Personally it makes me feel uncomfortable, like I'd be losing a part of my identity and replacing it with hers, since that was her name for so many years. On the other hand I am very traditional and would love to take my boyfriend's last name. I just don't want to be known as Mrs Smith the second, as that name is still, at least in my mind, associated with his ex wife.
