Change of family name after marriage

Question:

Hello kvod harav,
I wanted to ask if a woman gets married under the chuppah according to halacha, must she change her family name to her husband’s last name legally or is it enough to simply be called by her husband’s last name?

Thank you and tizkou lemitzvot bh!

Answer:

If you don’t change your legal name it might eventually cause you complications, but from a halachic standpoint, I don’t see any issue with it.
