As my husband’s wife, I represent him out in the world. This is an honor and a privilege. It is also a responsibility. We are one. I am him. I am a reflection of him. My behavior should be upright and deserving of him. I should carry myself in a way that is positive: I should act like a lady, speak well of him, and dress appropriately and modestly. Taking his name is not a superficial thing. It is a representation that we were joined together and that we are a unit, the marital unit. I take this seriously.
