Women should take their husband’s last name

First of all, we have been steeped in a paternalistic society for so long that when a woman keeps her last name, she's just preferring her father's paternalistic branding (and his father's and his father's and his father's etc…) over her husband's.

Also (and this is a whole 'nother issue) I don't think kids should address adults by their first names, and it makes life a lot easier when they can just refer to Mr. and Mrs. so-and-so rather than Mr. so-and-so and Ms./Mrs. so-and-so.
