The middle of the summer is wedding season in the U.S. and that means millions of couples across the continent are tying the knot. Whether you’re recently engaged, heading down the aisle soon, or just attending a wedding as a guest, these cool facts about weddings will put you in the nuptial mood. What’s in a name?
According to ‘Wedding Ceremonies: Ethnic Symbols, Costume and Rituals,’ approximately 70 percent of Americans believe that a woman should take her husband’s last name after they’re married, even though there are no laws or religious dictates to set this precedence and have you psyched to celebrate the impending festivities! There may be a solid reason behind this. Many people think if a woman takes her husbands name after wedding she avoids many complexities. And this is also an indicator that you are married now. If we talk about certain cultures, it is a must for woman to take her husband’s name after marriage. They thinks this brings good luck and avoiding that is embodiment of bad luck. So, if you are not superstitious enough you may do as you like.
