    In Lithuania, for example, you can tell a married and unmarried woman apart by simply looking at the suffix of the surname. I find it pretty cool tbh.

    And if she has only daughters?

    Let's provocate you even further and ask about a woman, who most or all of her adulthood stays alone, who is asexual (so there is no desire for another human being) etc. To whom she would belong? And why should she belong at all?

    I don't understand this belonging and ownership stuff. Why people should belong as properties to other people, unless they themselves desire so?

    I think present naming system should be abandoned and replaced with haplogroup (one from father and one from mother) identification.

    In Brazil nowadays they can keep their name, they just add the husband IF they wish so, it's not mandatory anymore. And the husband can add his wife's if he so wishes.

    With this shit my family lost all the cool surnames xD the spanish, bulgarian and likely italian one xD

    No, I do not think married people should be property of the state, i.e. married women keeping their maiden name should not be a crime. Government should have zero to do with marriage.

    How this can be of anyone's concern is beyond me... I mean, who gives a fuck?

    Personally I have no problem with it, and I think it's a non-issue. If married women want to take the last name of their husbands, that's fine, and if they don't want to, that's fine also.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    That depends on the individual, their culture, and whether or not they choose to follow their cultural norms.

    Who cares?

    It depends on the culture, really. In some cultures it’s not custom.

    In my culture, people don’t usually do this, and the kids usually either have hyphenated surnames or their father’s surname with their mother’s maiden name as a middle name.
