Interestingly, there are lots of barriers up for guys thinking of doing this; it’s only an option in eight states. And in California, a dude had to sue to get the right to make the change. “I had a rough childhood with my father,” says Michael Buday, explaining why he wanted to take his fiancee Diana Bijon’s last name. “We never really got along. Diana’s father stepped up, gave me career advice. He’s family.” [USA Today]
