That's not my name

So, prior to getting married I had decided I was going to become a hyphen.  My last name is relatively short, his even shorter, no big deal.

Then I tried writing it a couple of times.  Crap, what a pain in the a**.  Then I listed all the places to notify - DMV, Social Security, bank, credit cards, etc.  Crap, waaaaaaaaay too much work.

So I made some calls to those whom I consider knowledgeable on the topic.

Here's the result.  Socially, I'll use the married surname.  Professionally and and legal documents I'm going to maintain the status quo.

I wonder when, if ever, he notices.
