DEBATE: Should Women Retain Their Maiden Names Even After Marriage?

Posted on July 21, 2013 in Women Empowerment

A recent Facebook study shows  that there is a recent trend of retaining the maiden name by women after marriage.

However, there is still a social pressure on many women to change their maiden name to that of their husband’s – without having a choice. Do you think that women should retain their maiden name after their marriage?
