    If it was the end of your family lineage would you ask your man to take on your surname in marriage?

    In Japan and Italy they introduced this custom to prevent the family name from dying out when the family produced all females.

    Life is a (personal) journey
    Whether the "lineage" ends with you or someone else down the line it's really not all that important with regard to how you live your life.

      I hear you. However it's enough of a challenge to live for yourself than to be worried about whether or not you're the last person of your clan with the name. If a woman has a child that child will still have (family blood) lineage.
