Great Mate Debate: Step Dad's Name For Kids


Today’s live callers for Great Mate Debate are actually divorced but still battling it out…  Michelle and Kyle split up more than three years ago and she remarried, John, shortly after.  Michelle and Kyle have a 4 year old son who is taken care of by her and her new husband John.  She wants to change her son’s last name to her new husband’s last name because he is the one raising him and hates being questioned about the difference in last names.  Kyle says that he is the real dad, who created their son and is completely against this idea, even though he, admittedly, is not around very often.

Slacker says you can’t erase the fact that Michelle slept with Kyle and that he is the father of the kid and that is just how it is…

Who’s last name do you think this young boy should have and why?

Unless the biological father is totally out of the picture, I think the kid should keep his last name. If the kid decides later on that he wants to do that, let him make the choice.  Again, I am so thankful that I have never had to deal with this kind of stuff.
