What is the name of your state? Florida

this annoys me...any idea?

I guess i cant force her to go back to maiden name can i?


women can choose to either keep her married name or return to her maiden name. it is up to her. I know women who have done both - although of the ones that kept their married name did so because they either used it in their profession, or had kids. The only women I know that returned to their maiden name did not have kids.

Yep, she can. Especially since you have a child - it makes more sense. Don't sweat the small stuff.
