Should married couples be required to have the same surname?

Depending on the circumstances eg in professions such as teaching, medicine, etc, you can use your maiden name but in other documents, married names are preferred. Personally, I think it shouldn't be a big deal and your identity is deeply personal so how you deal with it is completely up to you.

The fact that we are debating this just shows how influential 'Woke culture' is. It really is no big deal; for many years, some couples have chosen to keep individual names (for personal reasons) and others share a surname traditionally.
We shouldn't have to debate preferential matters.

I think this is just what has been done traditionally from the past. But it fails most of the times when things don't go well between the couples. I think it should not be emphasized so much. Because if someone divorces and get married to someone else, they will have to change their name again, which is a little inconveniencing. I think the whole thing should be looked into and discarded completely. It is not necessary.

It's considered tradition for a lot of people and still happens today, but you're by no means forced to have your last name changed if you don't want to. You could keep your last name if you want and still be married. It's really a choice of preference these days. If my girl wants to take my name, I'll be cool with that. But if she doesn't want it. I'm cool with that too.
