I am a divorced woman who will be getting re-married soon. My daughter from my last marriage still has my ex’s last name. But now I’m torn about what to do with my own last name?
Part of me wants my daughter and I to have the same name, but I also don’t want to be stuck with the name that is associated with such a crap time in my life. I obviously can’t have both.
Since I can’t change our child’s last name to that of my husband, is there anything that I can do to make our new family sound more coherent? -Amy
Has anyone ever dealt with a similar situation? What name-changing deals worked best for you?
