Everything Old Is New Again


Just had a wash of notifications of marriages and, consequently, name changes. Whenever I log onto facebook it seems I get more notifications that various people I know - all successful, caree-driven women - have changed their names to their husband's. It clearly is one of my anger triggers - It really does make me quite remarkably incoherent with rage. I know I go on and on and on and on about this, but it is SO ANNOYING - not least because I have to change my address book to reflect your stupid gmail changes, as I discovered this morning. When you friend me on FB and we've not spoken for 10 years, I have no idea who you are. It's fricking inconvenient.

I also just don't get it. Just don't get it.

I would say that's reason enough to leave those people out of your facbook life who you don't really want to be "friends" with in the first place. Name-changing also annoys the hell out of me. We should start a facebook group called "Women against women who change their names for their husband's" or something like that.

Definitely the way forward. If you are Chairperson, I'll be Treasurer.
