In this modern day and age, do you still think women should be required to take their husband's last name after marriage? 

1,217 deviants said No. Women should keep their surname if they want to.
241 deviants said No. Mix their surname to create somthing new. eg Mr Pika and Ms Chu becomes Mr and Mrs Pikachu
226 deviants said Yes, even if my husband's surname is Buttface I will be forever Mrs Buttface
93 deviants said Can we just get rid of last names altogether..?

I'm never getting married, so I dun care. Lol. It's becoming more common to keep their own last name.

I plan to keep my surname. It's a relationship, not an ownership.

Pfft,no! We should either combine our last names and make something epic or him take MY last name,goddamnit! Unless his name is epic in which I will combine or hyphen.

I'm neutral. I'd personally take my husband's, but not if it were some stupid thing like Buttface. And it's ok if people don't want to. You have a lot of polls.

Where's the option where I make my future husband take my last name instead? >.>

mixing the name isn't as nice of a idea as you might think the kids of the pair now have to deal with a stupidly long last name, for me I have 15 charters then if you chose to mix it again the next generation it become even longer XC
.. its fine for the adults but its a pain in the neck for growing kids that cant fit there name on a library card (its fine latter on though)
personally i think the last name should be left alone if not changed entirely for the newer generation by the couple. ^^

I prefer the tradition of it, but to be honest that's probably because people have offered to marry me solely because of my last name.

It helps to be a Snape.

How would you truly be together forever if you had two separate last names? It's a form of submission for a woman to change her name when she gets married. If she doesn't want her name to change, then she shouldn't get married! Simple as that! I don't know why it's a woman-to-man's-name thing, but that's just how it goes! Men are to protect the women and care for them--who cares if they ARE able to fend for themselves?

It's a tradition that's like a ring - you're putting your name on somebody, you're owning them. I think its a disgusting tradition. I'm keeping my name, thanks.
