Forget about the Gay Marriage Amendment. We should stop people from getting married and having kids if they are going to hyphenate the last names of the kids. This is just going crazy. OK, when women started doing it, I thought, "Fine with me if they want to get carpal tunnel syndrome signing their checks 'Jennifer Hossenfeffer-Krzyzewski.'" I understand the various reasons for it. However, it has always been a personal choice. Now, I'm hearing about more couples adopting the hyphenated surname for both husband and wife which leads to their kids having hyphenated names too. We all know how big kids write on that elementary school lined paper. They'll need a whole separate page just for their name when they do homework. Do you know how many more trees that would kill? More importantly: What happens when those kids grow up and get married to another person with a hyphenated lastname? Do we link all four last names with hyphens? Where does the madness end? We need to band together and stop parents from giving kids hyphenated surnames.
