I was having a discussion about this yesterday with a friend who DID keep hers. She claimed it never crossed her mind to take her husband's name.
However, it never crossed my mind NOT to take it. I am very proud of being a Hamilton for 25 years, which is why DS has it as one of his middle names, but I always planned on taking my husband's name.
What about you ladies? Did you take it or not? And what is your reason why/why not?
