    Change of initials for a women after marriage

    Usually women change their initials after marriage.

    Do you agree with this?

    Is it necessary that a women should change her initial even if she does not want to do so.

    In Tamilnadu some women are forced to change their initials by their husbands and in-laws.

    Maximum ladies not by force ,they themselves change their initials after marriage.This practice is done as a pride.A family girl's culture is scaled also by this scale.But CM JJ ordered in her prior period initial of all must be of father and mother .
    But it is not necessary that husband's name should be th initial of wife.This practice clearly shows that ladies are all slaves of gents.This society is male chauvinistic and it decides after marriage she belongs to her husband and his initial recognise this this point.

    Ladies should break this practice and gents should help them in
    this fight.She can stand her own what is there in this simple initial.A child is always of its parents till its all men and women put initials of both of their father and mother

    It is unnecessary to change the initials after marriage. Most of them missed to change the initials in their certificate and so much of confusion because of this. Change of initials after marriage shows the male domination society.

    Changing of initials after marriage has to be decided by the individual as per their choice. But it needs to be ensured that they change it in all certificates so as to avoid confusion at an later stage.

    Hi Friends

    Change of initial only creates confusion in the society and there is no need also for it, do you know in north india after marriage the name itself is being changed here atleast the name remains the same.

    Does anyone know from where it all started and whether it is only a custom follwed here? (Actually it is really a custom (Tamil:Hard))

    Hi friends,

    Change of Initial will create confusion in all aspects, after marriage women can add their husband name after her name without changing their initial, even this also creats some problems but it will easily differentiate from her father's name.. So everyone can indentify she is married. Adding husbands name with her name is not only to indentify wheather the woman married or not, it also helped to create records in her husbands's family like family card, visa, passport ...

    So don't hesitate to add husband name with you name.
