Sometimes a good old fashioned coin flip can help you make a decision on small matters, but rarely do you go to the coin for a call on a major life decisions. One couple in the United States decided to flip a coin at their wedding to decide whose last name they would both adopt. Of course it’s traditional for the bride to take the groom’s last name, but more and more people are breaking with tradition by keeping their own names, going with a hyphenated name, or the groom taking the bride’s surname. Pearl Lee and Collin Hansen learned after getting engaged that they were both the last members of their respective families to carry on their last name. So at the end of their wedding ceremony earlier this year, they had the officiant flip a coin and…they ended up as Mr. and Mrs. Hansen. Since then, a video of the coin flip moment has been viewed millions of times and has gotten a lot of praise from fans of the idea.
