Before getting married I was talking trash…go figure…and told my now wife I would take her name when we got married because I was not caught up in the whole last name business. I just wanted to marry her.
Like I said…I was just talking trash.
Well wouldn’t you know that the same woman who could tell you when an old song comes on the radio what grade she was in and what English assignment was due when the song was hot JUST SO happened to remember the statement.
And she recently reminded me of this while we were hosting an internet radio show.
Only in front of the entire world! But that is how my wife does things.
It did catch me off guard but I do remember saying it. I also remember being upset when she did not make a sprint to the court offices to change her name to mine once we were married.
I also remember telling her that if I had known that she would not be so interested to take my name that I might have thought twice about marrying her…(trash talk)
But after thinking about the whole name thing and how my family…defined as those that live at MY address…are different and have our own identity…I am considering a NAME CHANGE.
WOW! I CAN NOT BELIEVE I JUST TYPED THAT.
Well I am. My wife and I spoke about starting a new legacy. A legacy that can be traced back to our generation. A legacy where things were done different and our family began making a huge impact on this world.
THAT sounds good to me. Maybe I will go with something like this. My first name her maiden name-my last name. I have a very close friend who took this option.
We say we are the family who is Saying No to the Status Quo. Maybe this is just another way to prove it.
