My brothers ex wife, divorced 4 years now, remarried shortly after their divorce and that marriage lasted only a month. She then took my families name back afterward the 2nd divorce. My brother has 2 children with this ex wife and recently had a baby by another man. The problem fell when she gave this recent child my families last name instead of her married name or the fathers last name. I have read comments saying the children will wonder why the difference or they want to belong, but what about when this child gets older, especially being a male. He will carry this last name forever. Will he not wonder then? He will know he is carrying another man who is not his father's last name or wonder why the other children have their fathers last name but not him. My brother has a problem with this. Not to mention he can't have a son to carry on his last name for himself but she gave another mans child our name. I'm just curious of anyone elses thoughts on this.
