Why are women so ridiculous? The other day at work one woman was talking about getting married and how she is not going to change her last name to that of her husband. The younger girl she was speaking with said that made sense and there is no reason to changing your last name to that of your husbands. Of course when they asked me to chime in they did not hear what they expected.
Of course a woman should change her last name if she is going to get married. The only exception I can think of is if your famous because of branding purposes or whatnot. The only reason that even appeals to me about marriage is that if you change your last name you have like a brand new identity so people from the past can’t come find you. That fantastic plus aside, women need to stop being force-fed this garbage of empowerment.
I told them that they should change their last names because nine out of ten times the man is the bread-winner. The younger girl said she was going to be the bread winner. I told her, that’s fine but be prepared to be miserable for the rest of your life. Women need to stop acting like they want to be in charge, they don’t. They want men to be steering the ship. Why do you think women who are with lesser men cheat on them and have zero respect for them?
I then stated that there is something to be said about traditionalism. What is so bad about taking your husband’s last name? Aren’t you in love with him? Don’t you want everybody to know you are with him? Aren’t you proud of him? I think everybody is desperately trying to be so original that they feel like keeping their maiden name takes a stand against some sort of nonsense. Trust me, it does not, not to mention, there is nothing radical about keeping your maiden name. It’s all been done to death already.
Then they brought up the idea of ownership. That the reason the woman takes the man’s last name is because he became her owner. First of all, this is from years ago. Second of all, isn’t that kind of hot, like a guy that you’re super into, owns you?
Quite frankly If I was a man planning on marriage I would expect my future wife to take my last name, no questions asked.
