Women Are Deciding Not To Take Their Husband’s Name

A new study has shown that one-third of women in their 20s keep their maiden names when they get married. The Facebook survey showed that more and more young women are deciding not to take their husband’s name because it doesn’t fit with modern attitudes to equality. In contrast, older women are much more likely to adopt the surname of their husband.

    they should consider changing their name after 5 successful years of marriage. Rechanging of names is too much effort if the marriage fails. understand!

    It is right of women. Because there is no guarantee husband would be husband forever because in few months after get married due to any reason any one of them can divorce or husband can die. If she had taken husband name she has to do lot of paper work to change for legal binding.If she want marry another man after husband death she has change name again. Taking husband name is sign of men domination over the women it is a remaining of western cultural violation against women.In this matter one of Muslim friend said Islamic guidance on this. According to Islam son or daughter should be called their name along with his/her fathers name in all situation, it should not be changed even after marriage. he gave me a example of Islamic way of witting the name. eg Ali ibnu Abuthalib which mean Abuthalib’s son Ali; ‘Ali’ is son name, ‘ibnu’ means in Arabic son, Abuthalib is fathers name, in the case of daughter instead of ‘ibnu’ the Arabic word ‘binthi’ is used which mean daughter.

      Hi AMila, I heard the same thing, its unlawful to change the names, as the last name is always belongs to a father not to the husband.. if you put husbands name at last, then it sounds like you married your own father. Its like a Criminal offence in real Muslim world, but in Asia somewhat its mixed up and of course some change some don’t care to change as it is unlawful. father is father Husband is husband. I also read in the Muslim Law a new book launched few months back… interesting to read that.

    why does a woman have to take her husbands name or even his last name. I know of a friend using his great grand fathers last name, now his wife uses his great grand father last name as her last name.. funny to note she is NOT married to his great grand father… people are just stupid…

    In Islam there is no question of a woman adopting her husband’s name. She can only keep her parental name
