The thread title is incorrect - Nick Clegg's wife's name is Miriam Gonzalez Durantez.

This on the other hand is Miriam Gonzalez

What deception. If it had won Clegg, she had been another Catalina de Aragón (Katherine of Aragon)

I think "what a disappointment!" is the better translation, deception is a false friend! But I can't see how Clegg could have become Prime Minister. Maybe in the future...but highly unlikely.

The same name, but she doesn't resemble to Clegg's wife

Well yes, the two surname thing has a lot of things going for it, and it preserves the names of the two families. Less sexist I suppose, but it just feels a bit more cumbersome.

Not exactly - she is a director of the company and has worked for them for 16 years.

Whether that job deserves 400k is debatable but I doubt that they would pay that unless they thought is was worth it to them.

Yeah that's why a few years ago I removed my 2nd last name from my social security card as Anglo-Saxon culture doesn't require you to use both names. I don't consider that sexist to remove the woman's name..

The second surname is only preserved for one more generation, ie Grandchildren, then the maternal ones are lost anyway.

I only use one surname, not only does it UK not require a second surname, it is almost impossible to keep it, as we have found out over the years.
