I was just wondering what other same sex couples getting married are doing with changing their last names. We have friends who have done an assortment of things but we are still undecided. One couple we know, combined their last names and had it legally changed to this combination name. They did this primarily because they planned on having children and wanted everyone to have the same last name. Our best friends both changed their last name to one of their mothers maiden names so it was different for both of them. This also came in handy one their daughter was born and everyone had the same last name. My partner and I are discussing hyphening our last name. We just haven't decided how. For me to add her name to the end of my last name or have her add mine to the end of hers? Or should we do a hyphenated version of both names so we both have the same last name in the same order? I don't know if this is making any sense but would love to hear what other couples are doing or have done.
