To hyphenate or not to hyphenate?

That is the question my dear lesbians..............

This is a popular concept with straight married women as a means to maintain some glimmer of their identity after they are married. The whole name changing concept comes from scripture which said that when a man and woman marry - they become one. I like to think of it as being a part of that subordination stuff that a woman must have for her husband.

So in your relationship...........would you hypenate your name? Would you take the last name of your partner? And what do you think that means when lesbians hyphenate? Or do you think some women us it as a "public display of affection"?

I've thought about this--and been in a domestic partnership. We thought about hyphenating, but really, it would have translated to Smoked Cock, so we thought better of it. (Hahn = Rooster/Cock)

I would love to do this, but my last name and the last name of my parter would combine (regardless of sequence) to create a pretty funny new last name. Cute blog. Loved your video. Adorable. I captured it for my VodPod.
