For those of you who kept your married name, doesn't/won't it bother you when your ex remarries?

I'm fortunate to blissfully unaware of what (or who) he's doing, so.....nope, won't care.

My married name is a part of my identity, just like my past is a part of me. It's my name. I don't think of it as "his" at all the way some women seem to.

I am keeping my married name. I have 4 kids who all have that last name. Also, I came from a divorced family, so my mom no longer has that name, and my father (who was an alcoholic) is dead. I have no warm ties to my maiden name. At least I'll share a name with my children after my divorce, even if it does mean I still keep the assholes name.

Status: divorcing - I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Just throwing this out there. It has to do with our culture, but times are changing. We are all doing different things that are becoming acceptable. In Islamic countries, the wife keeps her "family" name when she marries.

Since I did not have a middle name, I did what my mother did, and used my maiden name as my middle name, so now with current stbxwh I will just use my maiden name.
