I’d like to write about this. I married at nineteen and divorced at 26. Not my choice. I kept his last name because by then I had an established professional reputation with that name. Also, I’d never liked my maiden name. When asked by another woman why I would want to keep a man’s name, I told her my maiden name was a man’s name, too. My father’s.
