I am in the process of divorcing my husband and was asked if I wanted to go back to my maiden name. My first answer was no, because I didn't want to have a different name than my children. But then I started to have second thoughts. I don't plan on marrying again for a good long time and if I do, I don't plan on taking on anyone else's name. So should I change my name back to my maiden name now or do I keep my childrens last name until they are older for their sake? They are 12,10,10 and 6. They already have enough things to be upset about with the divorce so I don't want to add anythig to their plates.
At the same time I want to make some changes in my life that I feel are positive for me? Am I making sense? I don't know anymore. Thanks Lenore
