Gender Neutral Name Change

A Florida man recently found himself in a bit of trouble following his decision to take his wife's last name.  Lazaro Sopena changed his last name to "Dinh" following his 2011 marriage to his wife, Hanh Dinh.  Shortly after the marriage, he obtained a new passport, Social Security Card and driver's license.  One year later, Mr. Dinh was notified that his license was going to be suspended because it was alleged that he had fraudulantly obtained it.  Mr. Dinh is currently appealing the suspension of his license.  Grooms in Iowa who might be contemplating taking their bride's last name can rest easy - Iowa's marriage name change policy is gender neutral.
