Empowered...or devout in their religious obligations to the head of the household making sure the table is set every night promptly at 5 p.m.?
Nah. Has absolutely nothing to do with religion.
I think it has more to do with saying, "I am not a spinster!".
I have a client who is a very wealthy, self-made woman, who always insists on being called MRS
. She always jokes, "Hey, snagging my husband was the hardest thing I eved did. You're damn right I'm MRS
Or maybe, just maybe, it could be simply the woman's preference to take her husband's name.
