I find it almost amusing if it weren't so sad that women want to keep their maiden names instead of taking on their husband's names when they marry. Some say that they "lose their identity" by taking on their husbands name. Women see it as "giving up" their maiden name. Let's face it. Us women will always have the name of a man. Either our fathers name or our husbands name. God meant it like that. A woman is under the protection and authority of her father until marriage. Her last name is an indicator of that. When she gets married her last name changes to show the new protection and authority in her life. I don't understand why women are so eager to keep their father's name...either way it's a man's name.
