In almost every part of the world, the standard custom is for a married woman to take her husband's last name as her own after marriage. However, there are few places where tradition demands that the roles are reversed.
For the major parts where the woman has to take her husband's name as her surname, there are times where the husband would choose to bear his wife's name instead. In these rare cases, there are reasons.
In some cases, it is because the woman is a popular figure in society and in others it is purely for love. Like the case of the groom, Sean Michael Mseidor.
On his wedding day in September 2018, Sean Michael Mseidor became Sean Michael Wellington.
According to Twitter user @diaryofa9jagirl, Sean Michael decided to take the name Wellington to help his wife continue her family name through their children. The wife, Simone Wellington, was born into a family of girls, which meant all her siblings would take the names of their husbands.
When someone his giving up his name for someone he cares about, another is doing the opposite of love. YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a lady recently narrated how a friend of hers proposed to his girlfriend to shut her up. According to her, the guy told her the truth after she congratulated him on his engagement.
