Also the last name should be change because it is a prove that you are no longer single and as the message says. You are now one, so therefore if you're husbands last name is Mr.Brown, you will now be Mrs.Brown.
    Are you quite certain that your member profile is correct? It says you are a native English speaker from the United States, yet also that you are a student or learner of English. No offence, but if English is your first language, you have not represented yourself well with your first post.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I do appreciate all your useful and interesting posts prof. 5jj, just because I am very careful to your good comments it happened to me to guess you had a misunderstanding of other nations when you mentioned, 'An identity card is something that people in most countries in the world have to carry in order to prove their identity when required.' or the other place when you said, 'there is no intent to deceive in your country, so every one can call themselves with anything they like'
    I just wanted to clarify: we, like the majority of the countries, are in a nation that people don't usually intent to do so and no one has to carry any thing like the so called ID-card. Only drivers has to carry their driver's licence.

    Thank you, I'd expect you to accept my warm feeling of nationalism.
