#Repost @millennialmarried ・・・ #SeanMichaelMesidor married the love of his life Simone in September of 2018 and took on his wife’s last name to become Sean Michael Wellington for the sake of legacy. His mother in law had endured several miscarriages and after only having daughters there would be no “boy Wellington” to pass on their last name. Becoming the son they never had, he decided to carry the Wellington name to pass on to the next generation of black children who he also believed would have an advantage of an ambiguous last name for future career choices. // via: @essence What do you think?

Traditionally, a woman takes her husband’s name after they wed, but nowadays for some reason or the other some couples decide on the reverse.

In this case Sean the groom says his wife’s last name is too prestigious and since they have no male children to carry on the name, he wants to honor the family by taking the family name.

Guy’s, Would you take your wife’s last name?
