Cupid’s Advice:

Choosing whether or not to change your last name can be difficult. Here are some reasons why you may want to stick with your maiden name:

1. Your last name just fits: If you’re older in age and have had the same name for quite some time, it may sound better to you — and there is nothing wrong with that. Or, like Aniston, you may have a solid career where people have known you by the same name for many years.

2. It’s a lot of work: Let’s be honest: Changing your name is a hassle! You have to change your driver’s license, credit cards, reward programs, and more. Are you ready and willing to spend the time to do so?

3. You value your independence: Just because you don’t change your last name doesn’t mean you love your significant other any less. It’s a personal decision and may be a way of keeping a piece of who you are.
