    Did you or your spouse change names upon marriage? We didn't.

    As mentioned in your 'Anniversary' thread, W and I aren't actually married. I cannot, therefore, vote in this.
    I'd never ask a woman to change her name. My thinking was that we'd keep our own, and hyphenate the name of offspring (my last name first for a boy, and hers first for a girl). Since W was menopausal when we met, that idea is pretty much out the window.
