Are you following the newest marriage trend?
If your man pops the question this Valentine's Day, or if you're one of the 2 million people who will get hitched this year, listen up-- some of the traditonal aspects of marriage are starting to change. First we told you how a growing number of men are starting to wear "mangagement rings" (male engagement rings.) Now we've learned there's a new trend on the rise: Men in the US are taking their wife's last name, or hyphenating it with their own.
Taking the Name Change Plunge
Mark Tyler is "man enough" to admit to GalTime that he actually did all of the above. Mark wore a mangagement ring during his engagement, and soon after he and his bride Carol Tyler got married last January, Mark took his wife's last name. He started the ceremony as Mark Harper and ended it as Mark Tyler. The minister even announced, "Here come the Tylers" as they made their way down the aisle.
