WHEN it comes to love, some of us will swear on our lives about the things we would never do. One such thing is dating an individual who shares our last name, as in our minds everyone who bears our family name is related in some way, shape or form. But they say love has no bounds; when it comes, it comes, and even if you've sworn against doing it, you may find yourself falling for someone with the same surname.
However, frustration may arise when, after you've checked and rechecked all avenues that would determine whether you're related, and coming up with no le, some people still frown on your relationship. Relationship counsellor Wayne Powell explained that this frustration arises as we are socialised to date or marry someone who has no similarity in terms of surname. He further pointed out that this could lead to being uncomfortable and suspicious if someone we are interested in shares our surname.
Additionally, a couple in this situation may be the subject of immense teasing, but Powell said despite the friendly and not so friendly jests, once all checks are done and the couple is satisfied, it is best that they simply forget the snide remarks.

Some will humorously state that the bride will not have to worry about changing her last name or ature. With this testing you won't get a You will get a between 0 to where you can then say it is likely or not likely that they are related.
Moreover, Dr Beecher warned against people using disabilities in children as a marker in this instance to prove that a couple sharing the same last name was related.
