A woman taking her husband's name after marriage is a tradition most American women still agree with. In a poll conducted by Huffington Post Weddings and YouGov, more than 60-percent of women said that a wife should change her last name to her husband's when they tie the knot. Name changing is even more significantly embraced among female Republicans - 81-percent of whom said they agreed, compared to 60-percent of the female Democrats surveyed. Using a hyphen doesn't seem like a popular option for women either. Only 39-percent of respondents said that hyphenation was "a good way for couples to show they respect each other." Forty-one-percent called it "a silly piece of political correctness."
