Obviously, women are allowed to make any choice they want, including if they want to change their name or not. Unfortunately, people really didn’t think Lopez should’ve changed to Affleck because of how iconic JLo’s name has been for decades now.

She signed the romantic ‘On the JLo’ newsletter with “With love, Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.” Twitter went wild.

The practice of taking your spouse’s name actually originated in the 11th century when the constitution defined a woman’s identity through their husband’s. Women did not have their own rights, but through their husbands, they could.

Of course, things have changed, and women can choose to take their husband’s name or not. Some kept to it because they considered it a romantic thing to do traditionally. Others may be considering the legal consequences tied to changing one’s name.

But hey, as long as she’s happy about what she’s done, it’s her life to live, not ours, right?
