This is completely up to you
. Actually, believe it or not, changing documents when one gets married is not difficult at all
. Once you remarry, you can change your name on your SSN and Ca. driver license very easily.
SSN - see here
Ca. Driver's License - see here
The other government agencies are similar, as are private entities. It almost always requires:
1) A cover letter;
2) Proof of marriage; and possibly
3) A form from the entity to fill out.
Many people change their names all the time; it is not difficult. If a record does not get changed, you would STILL be recognized as that person for that matter, so there is no "fear" of losing something by forgetting to change it.
OR, one can simply keep the name they they had when entering marriage. It is your choice.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
