I just got married last month and now I have to get my marriage registered in the court. I don't wish to change my surname and my husband is okay with it but my in-laws are forcing me to change it. I don't understand how does it make a difference and why should I change it in the first place?

Rather this whole concept of changing them after marriage is useless. I mean you have lived with a certain name for almost 28-30 years of your life and now suddenly, you are required to have another identity. I don't agree with this at all. What's you viewpoint on this? Should a woman change her surname after marriage?
