Things No One Tells You About Changing Your Name

You may be flipping through your wedding album before you have a new passport.

Your marriage certificate will get more views than a viral video.

Everyone-the cable company, the bank, the social security office-will demand to see your marriage certificate before making things official.

Do yourself a favor and order a couple of certified copies and make a few more at your local print shop.

You may want to keep a copy on you at all times because the second you leave it at home, someone will inevitably want to see it.

All of a sudden I was writing new letters in cursive for the first time since the fifth grade.

An "r" that sat dangerously close to an "s" made my new last name look like kid scrawl.

With all the changes you'll be making, it's highly probable your new credit card may arrive before, say, your driver's license.

Or show the cashier that crumpled copy of your marriage certificate you've been toting around for months.

It will take some time before you get used to hearing your new last name.

This is one of the "Perks" of all the paper pushing-you'll have a new monogram! This means out with the old and in with the new tote bags, jewelry, stationery, luggage tags, towels-you get the idea.

If your new letters leave you with an odd combination, opt for a two-letter monogram or use your new last initial on its own.

Depending on the airline, you may have to place a phone call or send them copies of every piece of said government-issued identification in order to have those miles converted to the new you.
