As part of an intro to a longer piece on compromise in relationships, I'm referring to name changes.
To be more inclusive, I edited the paragraph to include name changes other than those done at marriage.
Will someone confirm that I wrote this in an inclusive and not unintentionally offensive way?
I'm also never going to stop advocating for both men and women to have the freedom to make their own decisions regarding their names. This is not exclusive to name changes upon marriage, although that is when the conversation pops up most frequently. Nor is this exclusive to last names, particularly since transgender individuals often choose their own names as part of the transition process.
