(American) taking wife's surname?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if this is possible for a man to do when marrying a Thai woman, and what the process is. We've talked about it as we plan to stay here long term. I'd be happy to make my last name into my middle name, or drop it.

You're opening up a whole world of potential pain for your good self, bkk7.  

 

What plans have you in place to change your name on your passport in your home country?  That's only for starters, obviously.

Do I read right? I've heard it all now. This is the most blatant wind up on here for a while, or is it?

 

fact is often stranger than fiction!

 

a small question to the OP....WHY?

And he swings........and he.............whew that was close, glad the marriage only lasted a few years.....Oh heck now <deleted> do I do. oh yes, have to go to court , get my name changed legally back, get a new birth certificate, pass port, send it to all the creditors, banks, etc...No thank you, keeping my family name.....Are you just plain crazy, it does not or will not give you any advantage whatsoever....
