Abstract

Retaining or hyphenating one's premarital surname among brides marrying in Hawaii in 2006 was significantly correlated with average income of wome n and the average income of men in the bride's state of residence. Only the average women's income in the bride's state of residence, however, was a marginally significant predictor, where both that of men and women were used as regression predictors of retention or hyphenation. Older brides were more likely to hyphenate or retain their premarital surnames upon marriage in Hawaii in 2006. Raw data concerning 28,680 marriages celebrated in 2006 in the state of Hawaii were provided by Brian Horiuchi, of the Hawaii State Department of Health.
