While sitting in the University Center, UW Whitewater's student union, it was difficult for me not to hear the snippet of conversation.
"My brother's back to the front lines. If, God forbid, something happens to him, that could be the end of the family name."
"So, if something happens to [the brother], when I get married, whoever I marry would have to agree that we'd take my last name, not his. He might not want to do that, but he'd have to. It's that important to me to do that. For me to keep the name going for my parents."
