Should Ladies Retain Their Surname After Marriage?

It is not right for a lady to retain her father's name (even as middle name) after getting married. She should take the new name from her man --- except theres a very logical reason for keeping the name.

Why? Thought it was like that in Spain. They don't even use compound names. They marry and their names stay the same.

Whats wrong with keeping a name that you have used all your life.

The decision on what name to answer is a very personal one between the couple. Some ladies already are established professionally when they get married and may not always be able to brandish the wedding certificate to explain the discrepancies, others just like it that way. So if they and their husbands don't mind I don't see what other peoples business is in the matter. We all Knew that Benazier Bhutto and Indira Ghandi of Blessed memory were married women even though they answered their maiden names.
