    I think no, because if they get married is because they want to start a family and a family can only have one name.

    My opinion is peoples should have the choices to choose the man name or the woman name or join both names for example if Lucien Lemaire et Tiffany Panier decide to marry . They could become :

    Lucien and Tiffany Lemaire
    or
    Lucien and Tiffany Panier
    or
    Lucien and Tiffany Lemaire-Panier

    I accidentally voted yes as I'm on my phone and I expected "No" to be on the bottom.

    I vote no. Paternal lineage is far more important and the family should be completely named after the man.

    Yeah sure if she wants to keep it I wouldn't have any problem with it. Now as to what the children's last name would be I'd have to think about that.

    Unless there's some Biblical passage I'm not aware of that explicitly states "a family can only have one name", can you give a reason why they can't?

    My mother kept her surname because she simply didn't like the sound of my father's. I wouldn't be offended if my future wife decided mine/my father's sounded too archaic for her sensibilities and followed suit.

    However, as with most other Eurasian families (which are patrilineal in nature) it was expected by all for my father's children to inherit his surname, regardless of my mother's.

    It's all about personal taste and, above all, choice. At least in my books.

    I have my reservations against using the woman's name, since in the Latin world the child that uses it denotes having a bastard origin.

    Well, my great-gradma was Rodriguez, but it was her mom's name and not her dad, ans he didn't recognize her, don't know if this makes her a bastard child.

    I find bastard notion retarded . In France more and more peoples decide to don't marry , and have children before wedding. Mariage is more see like a cultural/religious thing

    Regrettably, yes, it made her so. One of the causes behind the coup against Juan Bosch's government in 1963 was the fact that he wanted to push a law making all the children of a man equal in the eyes of the law at the time of distributing said man's inheritance. Needless to say, the Catholic Church and the oligarchs/military did everything on their power to torpedo the law into oblivion.

    Well, it could make things really difficult to the children in the eyes of the law if your country's codes don't recognize the equality of all the children of a man (or woman) at the time of dividing an inheritance.
