What's In a Japanese Name?

In Japan, changing family names when they get married is apparently a headache for women. At some point women just stay single just so they can avoid all the hassle of going through goverment papers and a long process. That is just weird. :|

Here is my interpretation of the article. Using the braches of cherry blossom trees to symbolize both family (tree) and complications.
