There's another big question that comes after you say "yes" and exchange your wedding vows: Do you change your last name? Though the majority of women do -- between 61-65 percent, according to recent polls -- there are plenty of women who keep their name for either professional or personal reasons. But while you may have debated if you wanted to change your name, we bet your husband never considered the possibility of him taking your name.

My heart. My soul. My love. #mothersdaycontinues #besthusbandever

That's why the world was surprised to learn that Zoe Saldana's artist husband Marco Perego is now Mr. Saldana. "I tried to talk him out of it," Zoe told InStyle for its June cover story. "If you use my name, you're going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world." Even with her reasoning, he didn't seem to care!

Especially in Hollywood, where many actresses gain fame with their maiden name, it's not surprising that Zoe wanted to keep her name. But we think it's pretty modern of Marco to take hers. The couple, who married in 2013, are also parents to twins Cy and Bowie. Perhaps Marco wanted to make sure that they all shared the same name? Regardless of the reasons, it's a bold and, frankly, ground-breaking move.

Would your husband ever consider taking your name? And more importantly, would you ever ask? Let us know!
