Why in the world would you end a relationship with someone but keep their last name for years. My ex- wife refuses to change her name even though it's been 10 years

For me I am known professionally by my married name and it is WHO I am. Why should I want or need to change it?? As a matter of fact if I marry again I have determined to Not change it then either for the same reason.

I imagine to make life easier. Socoal security cards, licenses among all documents hold that name. Plus, when you die... she can draw your social security or part of it & there won't be a hassle with the proof of the last name. If you have children they carry your name & many times she will be addressed Mrs Cricket :) If she uses that name for work, such as a professional she doesn't want to confuse people. Don't assume it's just to pi$$ you off dear.

When she married you, your name became her name legally. She isn't using YOUR name. She's using her own name.

If there are children involved it makes sense that she would want to keep the same name as them. If she established a career under that name it would suffer from a name change. Lots of expense and red tape involved in a legal name change Lots of reasons why she might be keeping it. Why do you care?

It could be worse, I know a woman that kept her married name, had a kid years after the divorce & gave this kid this mans last name:).... I believe Tina Turner was one of the first to start this, being as she had established her singing career under that name. It's very common actually, so don't be so offended:)

No we don't have children together. I don't know why after all this time she won't change it she's been married several times before me so she is used to the procedure. I hope she doesn't love me because it's not mutual

In the state of Arkansas when you divorce and minor children are involved a judge will not allow a name change for a certain period of time...I want to say a year. Then you have to go back before a judge and pay court costs to change it back to your maiden name.

Let me offer you a different point of view, my husbands ex told him she no longer loved him and divorced him and went back to her maiden name. Now, we are seperated (he left me) BUT I still love him and IF we were to divorce (which right now we agreed not too) I would keep his name b/c I love him with all my heart AND I am and always have been VERY proud to be his wife!! I am proud to have his last name whether we are together or apart. JMO

Well, you 'gave' her your name......so, now it is hers to keep or get rid of if she wants to, for whatever reason.

WRONG!! My husband and his ex had a minor child when they divorced and the judge awarded her her maiden name back as soon as the divorce was final!

My ex keeps my last name so that she can retain her social standing with people who aren't close enough to us to know that we are divorced. She gets the benefit of appearing to be a stable wife and mother to anyone who doesn't know she's a lying adultering whore.

I was having a conversation with someone earlier this week on this very subject. Sounds like I have something in common with "Cricket" and "yep". Wow...

I took my maiden back and I was married more than once, just asked the judge. I don't want anyone to know I had anything to do with that person!

My ex is the biggest [email protected] in this town. I wish she would change her name back or get married.
