Twenty-five years ago, my soon-to-be-husband and I made lots of choices for our wedding: where, when, by whom, what to wear and what to say. One was easy: whether to change my name. Honestly, I never considered it.

My father used to describe attending this or that wedding of a former student, only to have the woman he had taught as “Miss Person” reintroduced post-ceremony as, essentially, “Mrs Guy Manson”.
