NAME CHANGING: FORWARD THINKING IDEAS
While much less common, there are some egalitarian ways to change one’s name! While maybe not practical, perhaps both wife and husband could change their names when they get married, which is exactly what Jay-Z and Beyonce did; legally, they are Sean Knowles-Carter and Beyonce Knowles-Carter. (This works because it’s three syllables, of course it would be much harder with longer last names!) When I found out that Los Angeles’ mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa had changed his name to reflect his and his (now ex) wife’s name, I thought that was pretty cool and forward thinking.
