I used to believe you had to marry someone that had the same last name as you... and to make me believe it more, both my parents had the same last name before they were married... i always hoped my first crush's last name would magically turn to my last name :)

When I was a kid, I wondered why husband and wife always had the same surname. I thought that people are stuck to having to marry someone of the same surname. And since my surname is rare, I was so scared because I thought I was stuck to having to marry my brother, 'coz I didn't like him.

I used to believe that you had to marry someone if they had your same last name. I believed this untill I was 11. When I meet a guy with my same last name, I avoided him, however he would keep talking to me. I freaked out and screamed at him that I would not be his wife. Boy was he confused. =P

When I was young I didn't realise that women changed their last name when they got married...so I thought that you married someone with the same last name as you. I was sure I was destined to marry my cousin.

I used to believe that you had to marry the person who had the same last name as you. I thought that would be how you knew who to marry. That's why the married couples I knew had the same last names!

When my daughter was young, she thought that she would need to look in the phone book to find a husband to be sure that they both had the same last name.

When I was little, I thought there was a law that you had to marry someone with the same last name as you. My mother was the only married woman I knew who kept her maiden name, so I often wondered why my parents never got in trouble for breaking that law.

When I was a kid, practically all wives still took their husbands' last names. But I didn't understand that that happened and therefore didn't understand that all married couples that I knew of had the same last name for that reason. I thought the only pairs of people allowed to marry were an unrelared man and woman who just happened to already have the same last name. I felt lucky to have a fairly common last name, thinking that would make it easier for me to find someome to marry. As for people with quite uncommon last names, I wondered how they ever managed to find anybody to marry.

Since both my parents had the same last name, I thought you had to marry someone with your last name. I didn't want to marry the only girl I knew with my same last name, so in 4th grade I bit her on the arm.

I used to believe that when I grew up I had to marry my brother because we had the same last name. I was very angry about this because at the time I really didn't like him.

I used to believe that the reason married couples had the same last name was because you could only marry someone who had your last name. I was quite daunted by the task of not only finding someone I wanted to marry, but finding someone I wanted to marry that had my last name.
