In our "Your Comeback" blog today, Emma Gilbey Keller writes about Allison Yarrow's decision to change her name when she got married -something Keller never thought she'd do. She's looking for more submissions from women whose relationships have inspired life changes: Did you convert as part of a commitment? Did you move across the country or to another continent? Emma wants to hear from you at emma@thecomebackbook.com .
