In 1911, Ruth Manning, author of the animal centered fairy tale collection, Fox Tales, married English Artist, George Sanders; the couple both changed their names to Manning-Sanders.  This pro-feminist, pioneer move, happened in 1911.
Yes... at this very moment, I am screaming at my husband in an incredulous tone, "they did it in 1911!".  You probably guessed where I am going with this.  A hundred plus years later, my husband refuses to get on the bandwagon and change his name ala the Manning-Sanders. And he isn't the only one.  I have yet to meet a man in my circle that will agree to this "all is equal, let's use both our names" name change. Gotta love them Southern boys?
