I find this article very interesting because I've often wondered the same thing about First Wife. Why does she want to keep V's last name? Sure the kids have that name, but she has a third child with a different name. AND they were only married for 20 months before they separated. A whole 2 and a half years if you're talking in the legal sense.
So I don't get it. Why does she want to keep "our" last name?
Oh well. Guess I'll always be Mrs. H the Second. Or maybe the Third if you count my mother-in-law.
Originality is overrated.
