It depends.  What the custom regarding the names in the culture and time in
which your persona lives?

A Viking woman wouldn't change her name - they didn't use surnames, and her
patronymic still referred to her father the way it always did.

I do have an idea for you - if you're not sure about whether or not people
in your time and culture would have changed their name to adopt the
husband's name, contact the Academy of St. Gabriel and ask if they can help
you -- http://www.s-gabriel.org
