It's Not Biblical For Woman To Bear Husband's Name Or Surname After Marriage - Fr. Kelvin Ugwu 15

In a lengthy Facebook post, Fr. Ugwu argued while making reference to Bible verses that a woman dropping her father’s name and picking that of her husband is unbiblical.

He noted the culture of forcing a woman to change her surname to that of her husband’s makes it look like women have no identity, no existence till they are married.

The priest further added that the culture of changing a woman’s name after wedding is not what portray the Christian teaching of “two becoming one flesh.”

He said that in the Bible, people were identified by what they do or where they live or the children they have or simply as wife or husband of so and so person. They never changed their names.

Fr. Ugwu advised that women should not be forced to change their surnames to those of their husbands’, it should be by choice. Read his full post below:
