When it comes to weddings, tradition is always colliding with Hot New Trends! Nowadays, some newlyweds eschew the old name change tradition for the "Meshing" approach. The bride and groom combine their last names to create a mutant hybrid last name.
It's more fair this way, and both people have to learn new signatures.
So, how would meshing work for us? (not too well, I think)
Try it on your married / maiden names! I suspect that meshing doesn't work for most people.
