My ex-husband's fiancée has demanded I change my surname so she's the only one using it – I'm fuming

A WOMAN explained that her ex-husband's new partner had asked her to change her last name so that she could be the only one to have it when they marry.

The woman, who shares a child with her ex, said that she had refused as she wanted to have the same surname ad her daughter.

The upset woman took to Mumsnet to explain the full situation.

She said: "I have been separated from my ex-husband for four years, divorced for about a year. He has been with his new partner for about three and a half years.

"I'm settled, everyone happy, no conflict and my daughter goes 50/50 between us. All good.


"But I have never changed my name because I don't want to have a different surname to my daughter.

"Also, I just can't be bothered with the hassle. I see it as my name and my identity really.

"It would be strange to go back to my maiden name now.

"My ex-husband is looked to get remarried and he's contacted to say that his partner would be more comfortable if I changed my name back so that she can adopt her married name.

"My brain can't quite decide if I'm being unreasonable by refusing? I just don't want to change my name."

Fellow Mumsnet users were quick to jump in with their thoughts on the situation.

One person said: "Ask him if it is April 1st already!! Or tell her she can buy it off you and suggest a ridiculous amount of money!!"

His partner would be more comfortable if I changed my name back so that she can adopt her married name.

While another said: "She's the one being weird about it in my opinion! There must be thousands of people with the same name.

"Changing yours may also have practical consequences for travel and such (in some countries are weird about people travelling with kids who don't have the same surname!)."

And a third said: "The new wife must be havin' a larf. It's nothing to do with her and she can use her married name regardless of what you call yourself."
