From The Times Of India, “Now Hubbies Can Take Their Wives’ Last Name“:
If you have taken a fancy for your wife’s surname, consider moving to the US state of California.
The California Assembly has just passed a legislation making it easier for men to take their wives’ surnames…
“AB 102 is about equality, flexibility and getting with the times,” said Assembly woman Fiona Ma, who introduced the bill after a married couple filed a discrimination lawsuit earlier this year against the state.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed the lawsuit on behalf of Michael Buday, after he tried unsuccessfully several times to adopt his wife’s last name as his own.
