I'm getting married in a little less than three weeks and have been trying to decide what I'm going to do about my name change. I know I either want to have two middle names (one being my maiden name) or two last names non-hyphenated. As a result, I have two questions...
1. Has anybody found it difficult in day-to-day life to have two last names, hypenated or not? I can just see how that would be confusing. I would rather have two last names I think and casually go by FH's last name, but FH seems to think that this would cause problems when dealing with financial or legal things (I'm in law school).
2. I have read in several places that if you want to keep your maiden name either as a second middle name or a second last name, it must be indicated on the marriage certificate, but I was expressly told by the clerk that I am to sign the marriage certificate with my legal name as it is now. What am I supposed to do in order to be sure I can have both names? Is it enough that I sign as my current legal name and he signs with his?
