My wife and I just decided to take a trip to Spain in 4 weeks.
Although we were married over 1 year ago, she went through formal name change legalities only recently. Following our marriage, it seemed like one thing after another (honeymoon required a visa, additional international travel, major purchases) never left her a convenient "quiet" period to proceed with her name change.
My wife's airline "travel profile" information and her current passport both reflect her old name. I think we might have even (in ignorance) visited a few countries already using her old passport with old/incorrect name (I'd have to look at when exactly she had her name change paperwork processed).
Can I (or should I) leave well enough alone for this trip? (the link below says that I shouldn't).
I'd ordinarily just have her request a new passport, but I don't know that we'd count on receiving her new passport in time for our trip. Anyone have similar experience? As the above link implies we are US passport holders.
PS - I'll add before someone flames me that I clearly told my wife that I don't care what name she takes/keeps/invents/etc
