WIBU to renew my passport early?

That really. I don't want to turn this into another Brexit bashing thread (although I definitely was pro remain and am gutted with the outcome). I'm getting married in 2 months and my passport has 3 years left on it. I've read that non eu British passports will be phased in as old ones expire. I was going to wait to change my name on my passport to one carrying the note (the holder is also known as Coralpig married name) but now I wonder whether I should do that early. WIBU?

No-one knows yet how UK passports will be phased in, so there's no possible way to answer if the question is how best to future-proof.

If it's simply AIBU to renew when I want to, then of course the answer is YANBU.

You take the passport you have, with your marriage certificate showing your change of name. A lot of people do this when they marry and go on honeymoon straight after.
