whose wife is it anyway?

One of my acquaintances (let's say, A) who got married recently, changed his cover pic on FB. Like most newly married couples, his pic is one of him with his wife, hugging, with the beach in the background. He also rather sweetly tagged his wife, Shuchi, in the pic. 

Comments on the pic, about 5 minutes after he uploaded it:
X (obviously, A's friend): Dude, WTF? Isn't your wife on FB?
A: What? She is. She's tagged. Are you drunk?
X: Dude! Your wife!!! Her name's Richa. no??? I remember. I was at the wedding. I have the invite as proof. Who is Shuchi??
Shuchi: X, I changed my name. 
X: WTF is wrong with you people! I almost died here. Anyway, good pic. Phew!

X couldn't see Shuchi/Richa ka thobda?!

Someone I know got married and changed her last name to her husband's ... 'Page'. I have several 'On the same Page' type comments running in my mind when I think of them :D At least they don't have the same FB page ... :P

Dewey: He's only seen her shaadi mein. Thought 'make-up matters'. Lol!

Pixie: Where have you been, woman!? LONG time!! Hope all's well!
On the whole name changing thing... I don't understand it per se, but I am rather zen about people doing what they want with their names, as long as they let me do what I want with mine. :D

Roli: It's something I totally would have done. I guess that's why found it so funny! :)

Do people still do that? Change their first names, I mean..

haha.. sweet. though even i am a bit surprised on hearing a girl changing her first name after marriage.

Roshan: Yeah, come to think of it, it surprises me too. I guess I was too amused with his reaction to pay attention to that!

Alice: you're still around!! Yay! I know, right? I haven't even changed my last name! But well, must be some reasoning; I won't understand it anyway, so I'm going to ignore. And laugh at them. haha!
