When Men Aren't Wedded to their Own Name

By on Apr 4th

This morning I did an interview with The Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC about husbands who assume their wives' last names, as well as those who take on what I call "portmanteau names," squishing two last names together (Andreas and I could have gone for "Fetzlings," except for that it sounds ridiculous). I also revealed my hidden childhood bias against kids with hyphenated last names. You can listen to the segment below.
