1/3 of UK Women Keep Maiden Name

UK Flag

Are younger women hopping on the feminist train?? Or are they keeping their maiden names in the name of their careers? Whatever the reason, a recent Facebook study shows that not all married UK women are taking the hubby’s last name.¬†Facebook arrived at these conclusions after analyzing married womens’ Facebook pages and comparing them to their hubbies’ Facebook pages. The results:

  • 62% of women in their 20’s take the husband’s last name – which means 38% keep it maiden
  • 74% of women in their 30’s take the husband’s last name
  • 88% of women in their 60’s take the husband’s last name
