Indeed.
Need to visit GE office in person to change, right?

Indeed.
So in hindsight, for one just starting out, would it make sense just to pay the $110 and switch the passport now?

Seems like a total waste of $110

I just got my wife a new passport last week after almost 8 years of marriage.
Took her this long to fully commit?

Never saw the point in switching any of my wife's things to her married name. Socially she's known as her married name, but legally, I don't see it being worth the hassle.

You can do GE with mismatching license and passport? Or you just never switched the license?

Like I said already, you can.
But clearly Mrs AJK never switched her license.

If you love your wife its best to make it as difficult as possible for her to leave.

That's how I see it.
