Who says a woman needs to take her husband’s last name after marriage? Zoe Saldana’s husband, Marco, thought otherwise and took on Saldana’s last name.
“I tried to talk him out of it,” Saldana confessed to InStyle. “I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.'”Her husband’s reaction? “Marco looks up at me and says, ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a s–t.'”
In a lengthy Facebook post, Saldana explained their reasoning behind it.
Of course this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. There are some people who still believe in ‘tradition’ and would scoff at the idea of taking on their wives’ name. But is it really a big deal?
Clutchettes, what do you think about a man taking on a woman’s name?
