I'm getting married in under 3 weeks & my son noticed that I was already putting new paperwork under my new married name. He is very upset & wants to keep his fathers name, whom I am divorced from. He expressed to my fiance that if I changed my name it would feel like I wasnt his mom anymore. After talking with my son, it also came out that he is worried about what the other kids will think. I explained to him that I'm sure there are other kids with step dads & no longer share their moms new name. I also showed him my social security cards with my maiden name, my first married name & explained that as long as I carried those cards, I would always be those people....but I'm worried it didnt do much good. Any other ideas?
