“I do house-cleaning, I earn money, I plan holidays, I pay for food, etc. My wife is a cold woman, so she does not think that the surname is already so important, and these formalities make it difficult. But since I do all the work, I think I deserve the right to take my surname. ”- Andrey, 31

“If men started taking the names of their wives, it would be an unsuccessful and, perhaps, irreversible step towards matriarchal culture, which is dangerous for guys, because at such times, usually male babies were killed and treated men as slaves. It seems to me that when we force our wives to give us their last names, they think that we are infringing them. Yes, the husband’s surname was a taboo for a long time, but if my wife is so uncomfortable, then I’m ready to sacrifice these. ”- Ruslan, 27

I must be the one whose name lives on. ”Roman, 29

“I think that at the genetic level, women want to marry, and part of the marriage is that they choose a certain dynasty — for lack of a better word — and that means the name of a man. For a man to change her surname in her name would be to reverse a long-standing sociological phenomenon, and a woman shows belonging to her man. ”- Nikita, 27
“I’m somewhat traditional in this regard and as the only male child in my family, I think it’s my duty to save my last name and pass it on to my children. I understand why many men do not insist on it, they just don’t attach much importance to it ”- Alexander, 36
