Jennifer Affleck took husband Ben Affleck's last name after their quickie wedding in Las Vegas on Saturday.
"We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient," she wrote in her "On The JLo" newsletter on Sunday. "We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight."
Today's modern women are appalled that Jennifer dropped her famous last name for the actor's name.
According to The Independent's writer Victoria Richards: "No woman should be changing her name after marriage in 2022."
Richards cited a law firm poll that shows the number of women who keep their surname alongside their husband's name rose 30 percent between 2021 and 2022.
"It's 2022," Richards wrote, "no woman should be giving up her own identity for that of her husband. We are not chattel."
Richards said she changed her last name when she got married in 2009. "But it never felt right. It never felt like "me". And how could it? I'd had my name, my identity, for 30 years. Yet overnight, I was expected to become someone else."
"It made no real sense at all: I was already a part of my (then) husband's family, so why did I need to give up the name that had carried me since birth? And so, I put it right (or, as I see it: righted a wrong). I changed my name back by deed poll for the paltry sum of £36 – and immediately felt like "me" again. I would urge every woman to do the same."
Dropping her husband's last name didn't affect Richards' marriage. They're still going strong.
