For paperwork-phobic married women (but not men)

Because, you know, we hate anything that remotely resembles a hassle, a Canadian company called "I'm a Mrs." has solved the problem of changing your last name after marriage...for women. So husbands who want to hyphenate or change their name are still lost in the disturbing realms of government forms and new gym cards. The service, advertised as the "perfect bridal shower gift" (at last!) costs $29.95 (Canadian dollars) and includes copies of government forms needed to change your name. But we all know that if you are really dedicated to marital bliss, you'll shell out for the $49.95 package, which gives access to everything in the "I'm a Mrs." database, including fitness centers and medical forms.

The site says in its description:

"we appreciate that when you've tied the knot and become someone's missus you want to move forward and get on with this exciting new chapter in your life. No one likes spending hours sourcing forms, addresses and instructions. you're proud of your new name and you want it on that gym card, on your subsciptions and store cards, as well as on all the official necessaries. we've done all the searching and sourcing for you, so all you have to do is click on the forms and letters you need and send them off."

I really don't know what I think of this. But I know I don't like that there isn't a package for men. Thoughts?
