A piece in the news about people changing their names attracted my attention. It is not something I will ever do. I was resistant to getting married because I did not want to change my name. For some reason it never occurred to me to just keep my name, I didn't know I could, I thought it was part of the legal process of getting married. I kept my married name after the divorce for a while, because I didn't want my children to think I wanted to separate from them too, but now I use my maiden name again.
