There are three reasons why the tradition of women adopting their spouses names exists. The first is that upon marrying Abraham, his new wife no longer existed as herself but as the “wife of Abraham.” So if you’re not religious, this name-change reasoning doesn’t really float. The second reasons exist because before paternity testing existed, the only way to prove a child was the rightful heir to a man was through name. The tradition exists because it comes from a time when women were not allowed autonomy, a job, an independent life. Families come in all shapes, sizes, colors and sexes now. Families consist of half brother, step sisters, two moms, two dads, adopted or fostered children and the chances are a lot of them come with different backgrounds and names.Without the fathers name, the kid was considered a bastard. This pro-name change argument implies that these families are less than because they don’t share one unifying name. No one can argue that because I share a different name than my spouse that we feel and look like less of a family than one with a shared last name.Phelim Kine, Deputy Asia Division Director of Human Rights Watch, noted that Banda Aceh has been gradually adopting Sharia-inspired ordinances which criminalize same-sex relations, leading to the recent verdict.Same sex marriage is not recognised by Indonesian law.After researching all wedding traditions there are three that earn the top obsolete, sexist and promoting inequality – engagement rings, bridal showers and name change.
