My Fiance Wants Me To Change My Last Name – I Don’t Want To?!

Wednesday – Reader Question

I could use some support or advice.  I am engaged to a man I have been with for four years.  We really love and support each other.  Last night I mentioned I would never change my last name (I really didn’t think it was a big deal to him.) Well it is a big deal.  <!–more–> He got really upset and is not okay with this.  I hate the idea of changing my own name – I mean your name is your identity.  (well to me.)  I am a reasonable and compromising person, but he is not letting it go and I do not want to compromise on this.
