Not all married couples have the same last name

On Oct. 7, Cheri Reinarz noted that of the 32 births listed in the Pioneer the previous Sunday, only 10 had two parents with the same last name. She followed that observation with, "Whatever happened to marriage?"

For the record, not having the same last name does not necessarily indicate that the parents are not married. Some women do not change their names when they get married for personal and/or professional reasons.
