A young man did an unusual thing on his wedding day for the sake of love for his wife. The man decided to take his wife's last name to help her continue her family name.
In almost every part of the world, the standard custom is for a married woman to take her husband's last name as her own after marriage. However, there are few places where tradition demands that the roles are reversed.
For the major parts where the woman has to take her husband's name as her surname, there are times where the husband would choose to bear his wife's name instead. In these rare cases, there are reasons.
In some cases, it is because the woman is a popular figure in society and in others it is purely for love. Like the case of the groom, Sean Michael Mseidor.
