Although I haven’t decided whether I’m gonna get married and have children, I’ve been talking so much with my boyfriend of a hypothetical question that is whose family name our future children should follow.

 

Since I’m so indulged into feminism and equalism, I always believe both parents should each have 50% of the right to decide what will be the child’s name including the sur name. To me, tradition is never equal to TRUTH. Who said today’s tradition will be tomorrow’s norm and who said today’s rules will be followed forever.

 

My bf is much more open minded compared to most of the men I know, he even agrees to let our second born(if there will be) to follow my last name or we decide every child’s last name by a sortition, but he is still concerned by the tradition and custom. He thinks it’s not worth to take the pain that we might be asked again and again that why our children has the same last name with their mother or the children themselves might be impact negatively……

 

My bf asked me if I don’t love him enough or I just hate his last name. It’s because none of them. I just don’t feel easy with I do it only because the tradition says it or everybody else dose it when logically I don’t think it correct and reasonable. So I’ve been thinking a lot to find the balance between my dispute to the patriarchy and the practical convenience.

 

Today I finally came up with a very creative and perfect design to solve this conflict, a rule will be set up in my family: All the girls will carry their mother’s last name which means my daughter will share my last name and her daughter will share hers etc.

 

In that case, the new system won’t offend the current patriarchy system since the father still gets their son to carry their family name generation bafter generation plus anway the girl won’t deliver her father’s family name to the next generation.

 

On the other hand, the new system works the exactly same way to the mother side as the traditional way to the father.

 

If there is always a daughter in all my female offspring’s family, after many generations, there will still be a young woman carries my last name. This possibility makes me feels so good although I’m not a person who cares much about the afterworld life. But my life becomes harmonious with my philosophy again and struggle is ended.

 

Feel great about this new idea and strongly recommended all my girlfriends should take this brand new system. I will name it as Katherine’s Surname System and I also know one day it will become popular and be a new custom everywhere, hehe…
