If Gay marriage is allowed, who would change their last name?

They'd either hyphenate like the feminists or just decide between themselves.
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

Makes sense though doesnt it?

Thats probably how the tradition of the woman taking the last name came about.

Well it was probably because men are superior but thats got to do with taking it doesnt it?

Who cares? The prevalence and trend these days is for men and women to keep their maiden name anyways; I see no reason for married same-sex couples to act any differently

Well that is her choice, and congrats?

The point is that there is a high prevalence of married couples that do not change their last names, and it is perfectly legal. I see no reason why same-sex couples couldn't do the same.

Maybe in Canadia, but here in the States, people change their last names.

Not all do, and it is foolish to think otherwise.

Im on about the straight couples now......

It would be up to the parents, as far as I know. I don't think there is any particular way to go about it.

Both sides seem to be correct (for the states). Name changing was more prevalent in older generations. Newer generations are more apt for the female to keep her name. I personally know several who have chosen this route. It's no big deal, really. There is no dilemna about it, and as far as I know none of the couples made a big deal out of it.

One of my friends' mom kept her name and he and his brother have hyphenated names while the parents do not.

Hyphenated names don't solve the problem, they just change it to "who gets top billing?" Intergenerationally, hyphenated names either become unbearably long or the original question is begged. The answer is to just give the children the better name. If two people can't agree on which of their names is better, they shouldn't be allowed to marry.
From the time of the progressive era with the rise of public schooling through the post-WWII period, capital invaded the time workers had liberated from waged work and shaped it for purposes of social control. Perhaps the most obvious moment of this colonization was the re-incarceration in schools of the young (who were expelled from the factories by child labor laws) such that what might have been free time was structured to convert their life energies into labor power.

Cornelius-Knudsen is a bit long, but it works for them.

Whoever wants to. Or not at all. Or hyphenate. Or not.

You said you were serious. If so, why do you care?
So prove me wrong, then.

Hyphenation seems the most logical. That way, both parents and the children have the same last name. Duh..

In Iceland, a family with one daughter and one son will typically have four different last names. It's logical too. :)
