I always wanted to take my husband's last name, but I didn't want to lose my maiden name! My family has so much to do with the woman I became! This ended up being a "heated" discussion because he sooooooooo wanted me to purely have his name period! He didn't like the idea of hyphenating because he felt like it didn't seem like we were totally on the same team. "You are my family. It should look like we are family!" We compromised. I changed my middle name to my maiden name so I didn't lose it. I can put it in print or not. He was even struggling with that for a while because he felt that I would always have it in print so he thought it was just like hyphenating. I actually don't have it in print a great deal, BUT if I ever do something amazing like write a book, it will SURELY be there!
