When I got married I hyphenated my last name with my husband’s. We been married for over 10 years. The other day he said if I really loved him I would have taken his name. When I did that I wasn’t trying to be a rude, it was to keep my name because all my aunt’s and uncle’s have a boy and a girl. My dad was the only one with daughter’s and my last name means the world to me too. I told my husband before we had kids I wanted to hyphenate their name too, and he was fine with it.
Now it seems like every other month he goes on about me not loving him and my kids not having the same name as he does. I know when my kids get older they’re going to drop one of the last names and that’s fine. But the fact of the matter with or without his last name doesn’t change the way I feel but it’s getting old. How can I get him to just stop? – Lost in Ingersoll
