Before my daughter was born, I had already decided to give her my last name instead of her dad's. My reasons behind this were 1) we weren't married, 2) out of selfishness, and 3) figured if I gave her my last name I would have more rights.
Now, I am kind of doubting myself....did I do the right thing? Will life possibly be more difficult now that she has my last name vs. her dad's? If it makes any difference, her dad is in the military......
