I remember when I changed my name after we were married...While I never thought my married name sounded good with my first name I couldn't wait to be Mrs.
I took an extra day after the honeymoon, cut my hair (because that is what you do when you first get married) and went about the name change process.
I had done all of my research and knew where to start.
People congratulated me.
Fast forward four years I have this name change process down pat.
But a tip to the Social Security office workers, Drivers License Bureau workers, credit card company call service workers and the associates at my bank...
When I say I need to change my name don't ASSume it was due to marriage and congratulate me.
Note to self; should you go down the marital path again...NO CHANGING OF THE NAME.
