May choice ka! Kai Pastores reveals why she hasn’t dropped maiden surname
Atty. Kai Pastores wants women to know that they have a choice. The abogada said that she has been encountering a lot of questions about her hyphenated surname.
Since legally adding my husband’s surname to mine, I almost always get asked about my hyphenated surname when i show my ID. Turns out not a lot of people know that a woman is not required to change her name after marriage, and that using a hyphenated surname is perfectly legal.

Pastores claimed that a lot of people ask her about this decision whenever she presents an ID. As a career woman, the abogada said she legally kept her original surname even after she got married.
The abogada is also surprised at how narrow-minded some people can be at this age. She clarified “a woman is not required to change her name after marriage, and that using a hyphenated surname is perfectly legal.”
