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
