It only got worse when it came time for the parents to sign the document.
These are not necessary signatures since both Carlos and I are over 18.
However, a married Mexican woman can choose to use her husband's name if she pleases, so I could use Amy Gray Kirkcaldy de Gattás, Gattás being my Mexican husband's first last name. So now that I am legally married, I have three different names that are all legally valid, depending on the circumstances and where they are used.
I knew this was going to create problems when we started doing the paperwork to get married in the Catholic Church here in Mexico.
The first one is from the father and the second is from the mother.
