Happy Easter Dave.This is my problem. The men I have fallen in love with all have scary surnames. I come from a family that does not joke with names and the meanings attached to them. My first guy and I dated for 2 years before I remembered my family may not approve of him because he was Abebrese. Dave, Abebrese means suffering, I don’t want to suffer. I don’t want my children to suffer.
The second guy was my soul mate. Unfortunately I fell in love with him before I knew he was a Bosompem. Third guy was Diawuo. My boyfriend currently is a Berko, meaning he is destined to struggle through everything in life. Dave, the sad part is that, all the exes are still interested in me and wants me to give reasons why I ended the relationship. Will a man easily change his name if I am to explain things to them?
Or I can go ahead and marry but keep my name? Even with that, my children will have to use his surname which doesn’t sit well with me. I don’t understand why all the men I fall for have cursed names. Dave, I love Berko. He is my dream come true. It is just the name I don’t want to associate with. How do I explain myself to him without making him feel bad? I need your help David.
