The greatest attribute that a couple can share is the willingness to compromise. Without that not much else will help. Why would you marry some one who would issue an ultimatum? I have never even considered telling my wife how to be or what to do...and neither has she toward me. Further, relationships seldom truly end....they leave crap in your head when they leave. I find it disheartening that so many people have been so heart broken. Hope it doesn't happen to you.
Although you may be making an assumption or two there about people. My wife and our daugher and I all have different last names. Ny wife kept her maiden name, as she was already known in her industry by that name. And our daughter came with her own last name, since she was 16 when we took her into our household. And yet we are an intact and loving family.
