Divorce can be messy, but what happens when your ex-wife gives your unique surname to her newborn? That's the situation this man found himself in, and he's not happy about it. Despite being divorced for four years, his ex-wife still kept his surname, which he tolerated for practical reasons.

However, when she recently gave birth and gave the child his surname, people started assuming the child was his. The man confronted his ex-wife about it and she defended her decision, saying that she gave her daughter her surname as the mother. But the man is still upset and feels that his ex-wife's decision is almost obsessive.

What do you think? Is he overreacting or is his ex-wife in the wrong? Share your thoughts in the comments below about the situation.
