    Maybe most unsexist approach would be to call everybody xxxxx. Or maybe assign unique registrations just as we do with car number plates.

    Rather than all this messing about. The bloke can say I'm not getting married if you don't take my name. It's simple, if she is not up for that move on and find someone who respects you as a man.

    I think it's time to start being men here, and stop bending backwards. Now, of course if your surname is cockwomble then fair enough take the misses surname.

    There's no way I'd change mine. Not because I'm precious about it, but because it's almost a removal of identity. I completely understand why anyone would refuse.

    I really don't understand why this berk did it though. Unless of course, getting on the news was important to him. Maybe he'll appear on daytime TV next.
    Aye it is a bit different. My Mrs has double-barrelled hers. Bit tulipe if you ask me but hey ho its up to her. It is just a name after all...
