I was marred for 30 years and never changed my name. My son had his father's surname. Sure made things easier years later when we divorced! My son's teachers and friends called me Mrs. (son's surname). I never corrected anyone because it didn't matter. If you don't make a big deal about it no one else will. My parents were the only people who didn't like that I didn't change my name. My then-husband didn't care. I work in medical field and I can assure you that no one cares what your child's name is....health care number is what's important. If you find it awkward then why don't you change your name?

In order to have a non-confrontational, constructive 4-way meeting, perhaps suggest that both you and your ex submit to random drug testing?
