Getting married is never an easy ordeal and let’s not forget about the many changes that come with it.
This includes the decision to make regarding whether or not you’d like to adopt your husband’s last name. And for one woman, it’s not as simple as it may seem.
One woman is shedding light on how she had no clue that marriage would come with this much extra baggage.
After a while, she knew that if she didn’t take her husband’s name after marriage, she would definitely be called out as a feminist.And due to that fear, she’s now expressing how taking his name has changed her life forever.
Clearly, she was not expecting that because she assumed that it was just a name but time proved that it was more than that.
The 21-year-old bride says she was super against the idea of taking on another person’s name when you were allotted one at birth. She just found the concept to be super strange. But when time passed, she realized that people were too serious about the matter so for the sake of it, she did.
But before the big day, she played with her man and asked what his answer would be to her if she asked him to take her name and make it a part of his forever.
She claims that the decision caused her to automatically lose the roots that she once cherished. People just found it super hard to digest these facts.
And her family was included. She was no longer a Japanese and had broken the rule. So from now onwards, she would be taken as a White and not South East Asian.
