> in the US (she did take and use her husband's name) mightCould you add more background, please, Caye? When she immigrated, how old, was she already married (or was she born here), did she marry here, when--on what occasion(s) did she express dissatisfaction with or rejected -ova? It's particularly interesting, because it's almost impossible to find accounts of people's take on -ova in the more distant past, while there must have been some who weren't too happy, perhaps many. Anything you recall will be useful, no matter how precise/imprecise.
