Love Doc: Taking My Wife's Name Featured
Hey Ian, my fiancee and I have decided that we are going to take her last name after we get married.
I know this isn't common for a man to do and it has really upset my father. The thing is, I didn't really have the best childhood, and my dad hasn't been that great.
His whole family are very messed up and to be honest I would rather associate myself and my future kids with my wife's family name rather than ours.
I have already made up my mind on this but he thinks I am disrespecting him and our whole family - he says he didn't raise a Son who would 'bow to his wifes demands like this'.
How to I get him to understand this is something I have chosen to do?
