My sister-in-law is pushing to have the baby use her last name because her side of the family doesn’t have any boys to carry on the name.
This has caused a huge rift in our family. My older parents are heartbroken.
I want to know if this is really a big deal or not? Would not having the same last name as siblings cause any negative emotional impact to this third child?
What would be a compromise in this situation? I am thinking of suggesting a hyphenated name (her last name, his last name). What do you think?
Thank you for your wise advice.
