Re: Why would a husband take his wife's surname? #unitedkingdom #general #lithuania

My husband considered taking my name when we married, but decided against it, because it would have dishonored his parents.  It might have really helped our children however who had to cope with a situation that they had no control over:  namely being Jewish and a surname of Christiansen.   Our daughter solved the problem by marrying ( and being very frum), while our son has almost nothing to do with Judaism - and would not marry a Jewish woman. We both understood and accepted the conflict.  They had no choice.
