RE: OT-now Ms. Mrs./married names


Too each their own darling - that's the beauty of free choice! My mother
did too, because she said her maiden name was too hard for people to
spell correctly (Marsland) So she liked Evans - easy.

Jesse took her husband's last name, mainly because he is so stodgy and
old fashioned about things like that. It was a "whatever" for her.
There's more to that (name change) story of course, but she tells it so
much better than I can!!

:-D
