I’ve noticed where I work there is a lot of mixed families nowadays. Children that have different last names than their parents. Wives and husbands have different last names. Wives don’t change their last names to their husbands anymore, or if they do, they put a hyphen in between, like Jones-Harris Idk if this split family, mixed family dynamic is healthy. There is also a lot of diagnosed anxiety and depression disorders nowadays. Idk if the split/mixed family thing is part of it… Just seems sad and unnecessary that the core family is split up so much nowadays. The marriage vow is not taken seriously enough… till death separate us ..
