There is no legal requirement for a woman to change her surname when she marries. It is a courtesy and purely her own personal choice.

Many women, having already established their professional credentials before marriage, keep their names but also use their married names when appropriate. Harriet Harman and Tessa Jowell in government spring immediately to mind, amongst thousands more women.

Is the government going to force us all choose one identity only for their "single source of truth"?
