Lauren and Sarah of Two Brides to Two Mummies ask “What’s In a Name?”
Like the Bard who first posed that question, they live in England. They are planning to marry (legally, have a civil partnership) next year, and hope to add a child to their home in Birmingham. While their post is not about parenting specifically, it raises an issue that I think many lesbian couples ponder, especially if they are considering children: Do you choose a common last name, and if so, what?
Good question. Go read their post and leave them a comment with your thoughts on the matter.
Lauren and Sarah also note that they have been to “Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Wales, Malta and Barcelona together.” Whew. We lesbians get around.
