“15 Men React To The Idea Of Taking Their Wife’s Last Name After Marriage”
Men believe the family is their domain but when it comes to watching the children or doing chores suddenly it’s not their responsibility
THAT LAST COMMENT THOUGH.
We as a society need to discuss why it’s considered necessary for a woman to take a man’s name in a marriage, and why it is considered degrading the other way around. Take a minute to think about that: things that are considered necessary for women are degrading for men. It shows how society views women when you think of that.
At one of my school reunions, I met one of my former classmates who had taken his wife’s surname. He was so chill about it. Told everyone very proudly that his wife was an only child (and so was her father and grandfather) so if she’d taken his last name or even if they’d hyphenated, she’d be the last of her family so he’d happily taken her name so that wouldn’t happen.
The funny thing about it was that he was such a sexist piece of shit when he was at school. So, you know, people can grow and change.
My mother kept her last name when she married my father, and he hyphenated, but ONLY because he had a son from his first marriage and he wanted for his son to share his last name too, else he’d taken my mother’s.
Seriously, where the fuck is it emasculating to take your wife’s name. Men have to stop being babies ffs.
