A woman changed her name after getting married and her family can't seem to keep up. Despite informing them of the change, her mother keeps referring to her by her old name, causing confusion and frustration. The woman feels that her family should respect her decision and call her by her new name, but her mother argues that it's hard to remember. The situation escalates when the woman leaves a family Zoom call after her mother repeatedly calls her by her old name. Now her family is accusing her of being overly dramatic. What do you think? Is she in the wrong for expecting her family to call her by her new name, or is her family being disrespectful? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

When a name change causes family drama 👀
Changing a name can be a big deal for some people, especially after getting married. But what happens when family members can't keep up with the change? For one woman, changing her first name from Mary-Kate to Katherine after getting married to her wife has caused confusion and arguments with her mother. Despite informing her family months ago, her mother still refers to her as Mary and can't seem to remember the new name. This has led to frustration for the woman and arguments with her mother during family gatherings. Is it too much to ask for family members to remember a name change? Or is the woman overreacting to her mother's mistake? Read on for the comments and reactions to this family dispute.
