Quote of the Day - When desire, having rejected reason and overpowered judgment which leads to right, is set in the direction of the pleasure which beauty can inspire, and when again under the influence of its kindred desires it is moved with violent motion towards the beauty of corporeal forms, it acquires a surname from this very violent motion, and is called love. - Socrates

Finally, The Name Equality Act Of 2007 Goes Into Effect

Now, if you're a man and want to adopt your wife's last name, it's legal without having to pay the fees and costs to go through a name change.  It's the Name Equality Act of 2007, and while it was signed by the Governator in 2007 and went into effect in 2008, it didn't start applying to marriage licenses issued after January 1, 2009.

So now, all you Snodgrasses out there can legally adopt Smith (if that's your wife's name). 

Congratulations and best wishes.  I never know which one applies to the man.
