My wife and I got into a conversation this weekend which at the start was a bit jokey but quickly turned into a full blown debate about sex and equality. Her question was "Why did I have to take your last name when we married?" followed by "Why couldn't you have taken my name?". At first I joked about it and said if it was the law for the other way round I would have had no problem taking her name but it kinda evolved into "Well, if I asked you to change our names now by deed of poll, would you do it?". Now I'd like to think I am a modern man and all that but when push came to shove I had to honestly say no and although she got into a bit of a huff I told the truth.
So would you take/change your name of your loved one if she asked you to? Was I wrong/sexist for saying no?!!
