Hi hun. I have 2 boys and kept my married surname. For the same reasons. I wanted my name to match theirs. Don’t be bullied into changing. When dealing with schools etc it’s so much easier. Plus as he is a boy his surname will not change. Therefore (thinking too far ahead I’m sure) your grandchildren will have that name too.

He is selfish to think that name belongs to just HIM.

My situation is especially funny as my ex has gone on to have another boy with another lady (but they are not married) and so my surname matches her son’s surname but not hers. Eek.

Hope that made you smile anyway. Hope you sort it out.
