Hi, I'm...

Intersection:

1. A month ago I got married, anticipating my new identity as "Regina Rodriguez-Martin."
2. This week I began a new temporary FULL-TIME job (yay!!) and am reminded that until I have a new social security card and driver's license, I am legally still "Regina Rodriguez."

So which one do I go by? Should I change my email and signature back to "Rodriguez" while I wait for the government to process my paperwork? Or am I allowed to go ahead and be "Regina Rodriguez-Martin" even though my drivers license and social security card indicate that I'm lying?

When do married women start using their husband's name? After they get their new driver's licenses, however many months that takes?
