I just got married on January 14 and had a wonderful wedding and honeymoon in Belize. Now I'm back at work and the reality of changing my last name is slapping me in the face. While I am totaly excited about marrying the love of my life, I am struggling with changing my name. My first step was changing it on Facebook and it literally made my stomach hurt! I am going to do it but I guess it won't be easy.
How do you all feel about this?
Also, if you use an email signature at work, are your going to reflect your maiden name until people get used to your new last name? Colleagues recommended listing my new name with my maiden name in paranthesis such as: Jane Smith (Doe)
