Fuck this shit, fuck everything about this confusing shit. Why is this even a thing. Keep your awesome name forever. Make your husband do all this stupid shit to change his last name to YOURS. I'm so MAD. Thank you.

Ugh so many feels. I loved this - I identify heavily with the themes of family legacies of self-discipline and shame relating to money behaviors, 'ridiculous rules' and money issues as a mechanism for emotional control.
