The classic American culture around marriage says that a woman should take her new husband’s last name after wedding vows.
Plus, even in the most progressive circles, women will either keep their own last name or hyphenate to acknowledge both her family and her hubby’s heritage.
But for Zoe Saldana and her hubby Marco, well, all that just got flipped on its head!
Marco has taken Zoe’s last name, despite her trying to convince him otherwise:
“Marco insisted on becoming Mr. Saldana. I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘if you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, and by the world. His response: who cares?'”
Whoa!!! A man secure and comfortable in himself enough to take his love’s name and flip social customs completely around?! Now that’s a man to keep!
Zoe and Marco have twins together, and have been married since 2013.
What do U think — is it the right move for Marco to take Zoe’s last name?
