The UK still doesn't seem to be ready for people not changing their names when they get married. I know it is no longer 100% the case that the woman changes her name but it still seems to confuse. Often they give me the title Mrs with the Buchanan. But today we got a new one. Thomas took out his car insurance with Tesco to get a two car discount. They asked if anyone in his house had a Tesco policy and he of course said his wife, Phyllis Buchanan. He then gave them all his details, including spelling his name for them, but of course this morning an insurance policy has dropped through the letterbox for a Mr T Buchanan!
