Mine was simply that it is shorter than my maiden name. My last name was Hemingway, and so now I don't get people asking me if I'm related to the author as well. I am, but I don't know how or where, so it really doesn't matter to me. So I don't get irritated by that question anymore :)

Very interesting to hear your stories!! I do realize it's something that men in society have been raised with, however, he had broken the mold, and I thought it was broken for good. We'll have fun with this, I'm sure. ](*,)

Although my SO is very open-minded about many things, in a lot of ways we're both very traditional and very eclectic at the same time. The main reason I don't want to take his last name is because it is so common! Smith. SMITH! Jess Smith. Doesn't have a ring to it. I could be awful to myself and be Jess Knoxsmith. Ooo... Actually, I've been making fun of that option for the last six months. Seeing it written down actually looks neat... I still say we should both change our last names to, Izawsum. :badgrin:

LOL, I added my husbands as a middle name, I wanted to put it in a different spot though, i thought it would be cool if my initials spelled out S.V.E.N, but for now, they are S.E.V.N.

My So already has two middle names so he didn't take mine, he thinks five names might be a bit austentatious.

Interesting little fact though, did you know that judaism can only be transferred through the mother? So that If a woman marries a non-jewish man, it's OK, but if a man marries a non-jewish woman the religion is considered lost? I thought that was neat.. a matrilineal society (far more common than matriarchal).

Very good point Willow but all is not lost in those cases. She can always convert! It's a somewhat arduous task, changing one's religion, but if your whole heart is in it, it's one that is always worth the effort.

*Sniff Sniff* you looked so beautiful and happy, It brought tears to my eyes. Those pictures were really awesome.

I heard somewhere, don't remember where but it says if it rains on your wedding day then your marriage is forever, LOL my first marriage it snowed, I don't think thats the same,

But On my second marriage it rained so it's all good.

Blessings upon you and yours

Funny thing, it rained all week before our wedding day May 1st, 1994. But the storm broke just in time for our ceremony which was a good thing because we had our medieval costumes and all to consider if it didn't clear. All in all the officiating clergy said that we had more faith in the weather than anyone else.

We had reserved a Grecco-Roman type outdoor amphitheatre at a downtown public park and had relatives coming from all over for the celebration.

I know the common myth about May Day weddings(they don't last) [-X I've been properly papered for fourteen years now.
Course the wife said no to a Samhain Wedding( something about trick or treat for our anniversarys :lol: )

Congratulations, Blessings and Light to you on your journey together

Thanks, I think superstitions need to be taken with a grain of salt, reallyI think the people in a marriage are way more important than the state of the weather on your wedding day.

Perhaps a better indicator would be how yor marriage weathers the weather? :roll:

Me and Grimwell's Official Wedding day was actually April 1... April Fool's Day!

It's been our official anniversary since we started dated... I was asking him for a date for our one year, and said it was "around the beginning of April", and he suggested the first. I grimanced, but acceded. He later told me that he'd forgotten what April first was... but that my idea of our relationship being "a cosmic joke" sounded hilarious to him! :lol:
