so when I met my husband, he had quit facebook quite a while back. eventually, his friends started treating my facebook page as if it was a joint page, beginning posts with "hey show this to _____" or "to ______", which was fine at first but got really annoying really quick

after a certain point, I told him he needed to just get back on facebook. thankfully he knew that meant getting his own account, lol.

IDK on Facebook it might just help to consolidate into one profile, especially if they're the sort of people who aren't good with or don't often use the internet. Saves fussing with friends lists and passwords, no?

My wife and I have individual accounts, and I would NOT want them merged (nor would she).

I don't want to see the cat videos her friends posts, and my stuff is generally about cars, guitars and firearms and although she enjoys 2 of those three she doesn't want to see it regularly either.

Hypenated last names make me cringe, maybe I'm old fashioned but when a couple get married the women takes her husbands last name, I can see celebrities and professionals who need to do it for professional reasons but the average couple.

The most cringe worthy example of this is a guy where I work named Jesse has a hyphenated last name, as we communicated by e-mail I was under the assumption that Jesse was a women, until I met him, he took his wifes last name and hypenated it with his last name.

nah it's okay cause they are being upfront about it. I can choose to associate with the couple, not just associate with the individual and get tricked into associating with the couple


my little pet peeve is people who have them+their partner in their profile picture in an individual profile (I get the reasons why but still). Most people I know in a relationship have a couple profile picture, to the point where I just assume anyone solo in their pictures are single (then I get surprised when I see "in a relationship with" but I tend to assume the person places a huge importance on their own individuality rather than figuring that their relationship is either not sappy and/or deep enough for couple pictures).

It's so common that I just look past it but it does bug me a little deep down seeing my fb feed full of couples profile pictures of people I only associate on an individual level, when I don't know or care about their partner at all. maybe i'm getting to the age where everyone I know are in such committed relationships, starting family units and such, that you can't really deal with one person without involving the other (then again I know a few people with amazing relationships that don't plaster pictures of them and their SO everywhere)


though idk if there joint accounts on fb, haven't seen any.

I'm cool with taking someone's last name and doing the whole double-barrelled deal, represents equal terms we are supposedly getting married under. if I ever get married either we hyphenate or we both keep our own last names (kids get hyphenate)

also you get some cultures where throwing in everyone's name is no big deal, eg spain.

I don't get the problem with choosing the wife's surname I mean it's a name? Are you shallow? Is your lineage important to you, as though that carries in any practical way that isn't your sperm? Is it cringey because you project this caricature of them think they're "progressive" or "feminist" or whatever?

You do realize that not every culture has the same traditions with names, yeah? Or should everybody just do what's normal to you? Also, maybe they don't want to lose their name because it's part of their identity and heritage. When my mom divorced my dad she changed back to her maiden name and she said it was very empowering for her and it made her realize that she regretted losing it to begin with. Your view that a woman should relinquish her name to her husband is out-dated and kinda sexist, mate.

Wow I didn't mean to highjack this thread and get everyone bent out of shape, I don't care if my wife wanted to go by her maiden name and not take my surname the hyphen is just not my thing.

I don't project any caricatures on anything, so no need to put words, thoughts in my mouth/head that aren't true, you know what they say about assumptions.

While I realise my post was written particularly annoyed-ly I'm just trying to understand the logic, and not strictly yours - some people take it really seriously.

It was a question, not an assertion - I've seen some folks do that. Also phenomenology.

spanish system is kinda cool, even though still father centred.

think kids get both father's main surname and mother's main surname but father's surname is their main surname and when they themselves have kids the kids get the main surname only (and mother's surname as second surname)

getting married doesn't change your main surname but the "wife" can get the husband's surname replacing their 2nd surname (from their mother) if they want.


then you get goofy shit like iceland where everyone's surname is like "<parent's forename>'s son"


I think something like spanish system could work with your example but just have it so that it's up to the couple to decide whose surname is going to be the first surname. and then the kids could still turn around later on and officially swap their first and second surnames around if they want.

I understand where you are coming from, for me it was just how it was when I was growing up, the women took the man's name, the hyphen just sounds odd to me I guess and I am not really fond of it.

FWIW I grew up with my parent's calling me Joey and was likened to a baby kangaroo throughout most of my childhood, it was not until Jr. High that I was being referred to as Joe or Joseph, kids are like that they will always find something to make fun of

I vote that when we get married we get to choose or make up a new surname that we as parents and our kids will go by, I would choose Pit and name my kids Mosh and Arm

The Human Zoo - Mr Joint Facebook Account
Karen and Stanley’s marriage is a lot like wanking in a mate’s sleeping bag: sure it feels comfortable, but ultimately it ruins friendships. Near friendless but in love, Stanley sails the lonely sea of isolation, guided only by the shining star of his yearly tooth-happy birthday gobby.

One fateful night, Stanley consumed his permitted 6pack in record speed. Drunk on misadventure, he ripped off his shirt and sent a blurry topless mirror selfie to a babe’ing coworker. The grainy snap was heavy on the under chin angle and about as sexy as an airport toilet glory hole. Stanley waited with bated breath. Seen. But never replied.
Unbeknownst to Stanley, Karen has checked his phone ever since a “random slut” liked his profile picture in 2014. World War 3 erupts and after weeks of sleeping on the couch, a treaty is agreed on. Stanley was about to enter the emasculating world of joint Facebook account ownership. He will never be able to forgive himself for betraying his love, but at least he can atone for it.

“Karen andStan” wasted no time making its mark on social media. Every photo posted was of Karen and her girls and the endless Minion memes led their contacts to believe that Stanley was barely even a co-pilot on this starship cunterprise. Nevertheless, there was always an undue confusion as to who the fuck was actually using the account.
Karen receives a notification about a bucks night invite. She permits Stanley to temporarily re-attach his balls and use the account to let them know he was “maybe attending”. He comments, “Sounds good guys, would love to come”. Karen snatches her phone back, and replies to the comment, “ha ha if he gets permission!!!! Ha ha”.
The exchange sends dickless shockwaves down Stanley’s spine. He has had enough and replies again, “p*ss off Karen!”. Holy shit.

The red mist of mega bitchery fogs Karen’s vision. She goes into attack mode and replies, “HOW DARE YOU SPEAK TO ME LIKE THAT!! Guys, he thinks he is a big man, but trust me, he is VERY SMALL”.

The capslockery stokes his masculine wiles, “I’ve bl**dy had enough babe! I’m going to the event and that is that, Chr*st almighty”.
The atmosphere is tense with anticipation. Stanley's barely-mates are desperate to know who emerged the victor of this clusterfuck of awkward weakcuntery. Well, they don’t have to wait long, as Karen andStan post a status update:
“I would you all to know that Stanley is very sorry for the comments he made on FB and says he will definitely be taking his lovely wife Karen out for dinner tonight! Xoxo”.

It might seem a bit petty - but this caused a rift in a relationship of old for me.

I was seeing some chick with Latin blood. Naturalized and really only 10 years off the figurative boat. When things were getting a bit more serious, I started looking into her family. I inquired about why her sister and nephew don't share a last name. Latin lineage lesson ensued. I inquired why her sister didn't take her Latin husband's name and was accepting of the "Latin heritage" response.

Later that night, I asked about name changes and retention on her part. Ethnocentrism took over. It's weird to think that I'd expected her to adopt the "Euro/American-standard" for surname and lineage, but I hadn't considered it to be any other way. It was something I took for granted.

Now that I look back at it - it seems a bit short-sighted, and taking on a husband's surname shouldn't compromise the desire to spend time with my ladyfriend, but it bothered the spit out of me. Not really sad that one got away. That was just more of an ethnocentric eye-opener about what I expect to face down the line where heritage elements and "the way things are done" get thrown to the wayside.
