What's in a name?


"Dear Pulse,

My name is Paul Adibe and I love the way your readers respond to questions from people who write in and I am sure mine will not be different.

I know some people may see my request as being petty and not something to worry about but it is making me and my family uncomfortable.

You see, I divorced my first wife two years ago due to some issues I will not want to divulge here. Early this year, I got married to another woman but my former wife has refused to drop my name even after a court had told her to do so.

This is causing a lot of embarrassment for me and my family especially my new wife who has told me point blank that the fact that my ex-wife has refused to drop my name means we still have something together.

This is causing friction for us and I do not want that.

How do I get my ex to drop my name?
