Does anyone have different last names amoung your dc, but the same father? DH and I have been married for 5 years, I took his last name, and have regretted it since. I will change it back to mine, just haven't gotten it together enough to do everything my state requires of me. Now that #2 is coming, I refuse to start the process because DH has to come to court with me and give his permission.: Anyway, I feel very strongly against this babe having DH's last name, DD does have his last name, DH isn't exactly thrilled either. He has issues with me wanting to change my name in the first place, he has low self-esteem and to him it means that I am rejecting him, another reason I've been dragging my feet. I feel that he has one child with his name, and I want one with mine. We both are at the end of the family line, very small families, no one is our parent's generation had dc except our parents, and we are the only ones in our generation having dc as well. It makes it even more important to me to pass down my maiden name, it is an unusual name, and DH's is common. Hypenating is not a question, DH hates that even more then he hates the idea of different last names. Anyone been in a similar boat?
