Studies show upwards of 90 percent of women change their names when they get married, but in recent months, there have been stories written by women who chose to keep their name when they said "I do." Or, some went with something even less conventional like asking their man to take their name instead or creating a whole new last name for the newly formed family. It got us thinking: what would MarieClaire.com readers do? So, tell us!
Rebecca Shapiro is Marie Claire's senior editor. She previously worked at The Huffington Post and MSNBCs Morning Joe, where she bonded with the wee early hours and Starbucks extra hot red eye lattes. She also possesses a totally reasonable hatred for umbrellas.
Tara Lamont-Djite is Marie Claire's fashion and beauty writer. She got her start Devil Wears Prada-style, assisting the editor-in-chief of InStyle Australia before taking the leap and moving to New York City. Since arriving, she rejoined the InStyle family in the New York office, spent some time in the beauty world as an Associate Beauty Editor at Beautylish.com, and has written for Style.com, Harper's Bazaar, and ELLE. She can quote a line from almost every Sex and the City episode, and is more than willing to admit she has a fashion addiction.
Hallie is Marie Claire's social editor. Formerly the associate web editor of Real Beauty, Hallie is a 90s lipstick enthusiast and loves a good thick brow.

Follow her on Twitter @gouldhallie for a good time.
