It's hard to say because you will still have the problem of what surname the children will carry.
I had a Japanese friend whose sister married a caucasian man. Her father had died and so the man took the sister's Japanese last name when they married so the name would carry on. I thought that was a lovely gesture on his part.
I love my husband dearly and it goes far beyond names. I have been married 42 years and if I had it to do over again, I would keep my maiden name because it seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle and I was the last of my family too.
