The issue of whether women should take their husbands’ last names when they get married is a divisive one. (Just check out the comment thread on this post.) But what about keeping a man’s name after the divorce?
Susan Sarandon and Demi Moore are both examples of women who did this, holding on to the names of men they were married to earlier in their careers. Since Susan became famous while using the last name Sarandon, it made sense for her to keep it as she continued her career. I also know a woman who kept her husband’s name post-divorce so that she and her kids would have the same last name and legal paperwork would be less confusing. Would you keep a name post-divorce, or do you know someone who has?
