[Booking part of the honeymoon]
Woman on phone: What's your surname for the tickets?
Me: It's, uhh.... well, we'll be, um, married then. So do I give you his name?
Result: Tickets booked under J's name and initial. Even though it will then be MY name too. I could have given her my married name. I didn't. I didn't feel I could own it yet.
I really need to start thinking of it as MY name too. First step: develop a new signature. This is going to be strange...
