Must women change a family name after getting married?

Hello and welcome to my School Wednesday! Some times ago I was worried of this question if every women change their surname after becoming Mrs.? It's very interesting as I've got married this summer. To me, one family is one whole. And everybody of one family "starts" with "the", I mean, for example, The Martirosyan. But a lot of people, it doesn't matter if they are women or men, they prefer save their parents' surname. And I can't judge any people. For example, my sister has our family name but her husband changed his surname and took our family name. And I think that it's wonderful that they have a common family name. But to me, I took my husband's surname. And now I am Mary Martirosyan.

Some people quarrel because of family name and to me, it isn't right. You are going to get married, you love this person and you can't imagine your life without her or him. And you would like to be the whole and after it you say: "I have no idea how I can change all documents". It sounds not cleverly. If you will spend all your life with this person you won't die spending a couple of month to change your documents. What do you think? 

Thank you for reading.
