Name change on degree???
This question is for the ladies who plan on getting married BEFORE they graduate. I'm getting married next summer (July 6 :] ) and I'm graduating the following December. When I first got engaged I planned on keeping my maiden name on my degree. I am changing my last name to FIs asap after the wedding along with everything else. I plan to keep my maiden name on my degree because its who I am and everything I've worked for (first in my family to go to college) and in many ways I wouldn't feel right if I changed it for this purpose. Not to mention my parents have hinted they wanted it this way when we told them of the engagement. My maiden name is also one of those names that everybody calls you by and is kind of unique; at least where I'm from. Now that I've started wondering, I'm thinking about having FIs name on my degree. I've been with him since hs graduation and I feel I almost owe it to him. So what I am asking is how many of you ladies plan on keeping or kept your maiden name on your degree and why??
And for the record my intials now are AJM (each being 7-8 letters long) and once I'm married I plan on making them AJMP so you can only imagine how long my name will really be. This being because my middle is my grandmas name and I dont want to drop my middle or last name and I don't want to hyphenate. Sorry this is longer then I intended...
