good evening friends.... last week i went to my cousin's home. i stayed there for 2 days. my cousin said me the thing which made me surprised. they are married for 3 years. she never said this to me before. her husband always insist her to change her surname (he asked to use his name after her name) he don't want her to use her father's name.

when i heard this i really surprised. any husband will say this to her wife very openly?

she don't want to change her name. in her certificates, mail id's and other social networking sites she is using her father's name only.

because of this, they often have silly fights it seems. i can feel from her words that her husband desperately wants her surname to be changed. but i don't know the reason for this? what would be the reason for his thought? is it necessary to change her surname? this problem is being there from the beginning. should i advice her to change her surname or not.

because i changed my surname soon after my marriage. i used my husband's name as surname. but he didn't insist me.

hi revathi its not so necessary. it is depending on your own willingness. i have seen many ladies are adding their husband's surname very soon after their marriage. even after an engagement girls are adding their future husband's name. so this is depending on person. if your friend is willing to change her surname, she can change it. or else let it be. but she should consider this matter more importantly, when the thing is reason for their relationship problems. her husband may thought it is a symbol her love towards him. so its not a big deal. your friend can use her husband's name as surname.
