    My wife floated that idea.
    I said why both, let the baby have only your last name.
    That way I m free to pursue other women and not be overly obligated to be monogamous with her.

      @ mr 🌍, @mangocake, isn’t marriage and being monogamous an old patriarchal tradition too ? Why follow the old norms for that either ?

      Let’s just all be equal and free from any cultural norms and see where it takes us.

      I don’t like hypocrisy. This should only be done if the women has her father and mother’s last name.
      So the kid must have 4 last names in case one is being totally ignorant pig, and forgetting the contributions of grand moms . Then the kid can have 4,8 or 16 last names

      So your wife is not obligated to be monogamous now ?

      She is. Monogamy and kid taking the father’s surname are both part of prevailing cultural norms.

      If she has to break the norms, it should be both.

      While it’s good that norms have been broken in past, does not mean all others can be broken at no cost.

      Will men start getting 50% custody ? If not, can the child support law be abolished now since the woman is equally capable of earning and is fighting to keep the custody ?

      @TmplDoom nails it. Too much misplaced feminism in this thread.

      You can also just give them any random last name.

      Also after hearing my wife complain so much about how much of a hassle changing her last name was, I'm not really looking to do that just for fun.

    Don’t do this to your kid. No one wants to be friends with the hyphenated guy.

    I told my wife it’s cool if you don’t want to take my last name but that means we aren’t going to be old fashioned at all.

    If you hear something outside in the middle of the night, I’m not going to go. Something is heavy and you can’t lift it, figure it out like have to. Whose responsibility is it to fix things? Not mine. Car trouble = your trouble. I am all for not following gender norms but it’s a all or nothing for me. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Fuck that.

      I assume your wife is financially dependent on you
      Nov 30, 2018
    • Procore / Eng Lovemyson
      Yeah and I am dependent on her to work for free and watch our children. Your point?
      Nov 30, 2018
    • Microsoft Hgtdvj
      Your perspective on this topic would be different if she was financially independent and you shared all responsibilities *approx equally rather than making a division of responsibilities.

      The things that you called ‘old fashioned’ are really just concept of partnership where each of you help out the other in an area they are not fully competent. That’s called a marriage.
      Your concept of marriage seems conditional to me where the amount of your responsibilities seem to be much higher than your wife’s (atleast according to this post) and hence you feel you are entitled/more deserving to have kids taking your name than your wife’s.

      My responsibilities aren’t higher. My job is way easier. If you have kids you would know that taking care of them full time is the hardest job in the planet. There is no escape.

    Everyone having different names just makes things so ridiculously complicated.

      Filling out forms, addressing envelopes, correcting people when they call you Mr. and Mrs. Jones. No, sorry and it is Mr. Jones and Mrs. Smith. And the kids are Jones-Smith.

      @ijyA68,
      There are many different traditions for naming children in the world.
      Did you want the diversity? Here you are 😉

    Who cares? Is it ego? Control? Pride? We live in a patriarchal time, where men keep their last names in our culture. Let your wife keep her last name. It won’t change who she is or how much she will despise you irrespective.

    One of my (girl) friend's fiance (guy) said he was going to change HIS last name to hers. But then the girl lied about everything, so not sure if really true.

    If it's a girl, name her <your wife's name> Jr 😀

    • Intel / Other 10% ESPP!
      I don't know why this isn't a thing and I suggested this to my wife if we have a girl but she doesn't want to do it.
      Nov 29, 2018
    • Microsoft / Eng l33tkod3r
      Tbh, I find naming your son Jr a bit weird. It's almost like you want a clone. Ditto for your daughter. I was being flippant in my comment.
      Nov 29, 2018
    • Intel / Other 10% ESPP!
      It does seem weird, like something only really self absorbed people would do. Which is why I'd like to do it. 😆

      I take everything on blind as a flippant comment so I understood you, but I really did ask my wife that question though.

    Just merge the two last names. No need for hyphenation. So Mr Jones and Ms Smith kid would be Smones or Jith.
