Taking his last name...
Posted by By: Dr. Laura Berman on July 27 2017

Dr. Berman- My fiancé and I are both pretty successful in our careers.  I have more name recognition in mine, and for that purpose, we have both agreed that I should keep my maiden name.  Our children will be hyphenated.  We recently mentioned it to his parents and they went nuts on us – carrying on about how we needed to preserve the family name.  They are blue bloods from the cape and now have told us that if I don’t change my name they would see it as a great disrespect and not bless the marriage.  What do I do here?  Shelby
