Ok so DP is finally filing for divorce after 5 yrs of separation which I am delighted about it all but I am annoyed she wants to keep his surname.

I know it's not really a big deal and she says she wants to have the same name as the kids.

I don't even know why but it really really bothers me. The only connection I want DP to have (and he wants) is the kids.

I know it's a bit selfish of me but is it normal to feel like this?!

If it really bothers you, you could ask your DP to change his surname to something else. Maybe to your surname.

I would hate my dh ex to have what I see as "our" name so I kind of understand. However they were never married, if they had been I would have known all along she had that name and it wouldn't be my place to expect her to change it. I get where you're coming from entirely tho. Do u think u and dp will ever marry? If so you, him and you lo will all have the same name in the future.
