    As A Parent, Would You Support Your Daughter To Change Her Maiden Name On Marriage?

    Support, encourage, or pressure? I feel all three in your question. Regardless, for a couple in USA, a woman can keep the maiden name, take the husband's name, hyphenate the names, her partner can take her maiden name or the hyphenated name, or both can select a different surname altogether and change to that legally if a court agrees.

    Keeping a maiden name after marriage still bothers some other family members in the early 21st Century. However, I think that in some cultures, the woman has never changed to the husband's surname. I would like to find out how many people in USA are bothered by a lack of name change by others after a marriage.

    traditionally, when women marry, they automatically take their husbands' last names

    I am married for the second time and both times, I kept my maiden name. I never really saw a reason to change my name, and I never regretted it.

    Yes, I would. I think this is Biblical and I live by the Bible...  She may want to put here Maiden name in the Middle.
