So a lady asked if it was disrespectful for a woman to give her children her last name as opposed to the father's. Here's my debate question to add: is it disrespectful or wrong to have your young child (before 14yrs old when they can legally decide themselves) take their stepfather's last name if you remarry.
So ladies is a rose by any other name? When the only tie your child has to their biological father is their lastname is it wrong to get rid of that last connection when they are young and have no say? Would it be wrong to keep your child a Cole when the only family they know are Smiths?
