Hmm interesting. Never had that asked to me before. Hyphanate, when the divorce is done just remove the hyphen. Just kidding. Most importmant, is the relationship it self. Is the relationship healthy? If the relationship isn't healthy, the name won't matter. It easy to get a divorce. I'm from northen minnesota, it seems like when people get a divorce, the lawyers are basically dividing up stuff and just getting the divorce over with. The couple has to accept that they are seperated. If they want to get back together again in the future, its up to them, but remeber what got them seperated. If I was a judge, or even as a person, i expect both parties to move on with their life as an individual. I don't hear trash talking towards one another. Sometimes a divorce leads to one party and or both parties talking bad about each other. That shows that the person is not strong. The person cannot move on. If restraining orders need to be put on, both parties need to respect the order. If a person decides to remove an order, it will be hard because as a judge, i don't want to hear, or even as a person, i don't want to hear day in and day out husband/wife bf/gf issues. That annoys people. Its individual freedom now that the divorce is final or the realtionship is over. So the name is not really an issue its the strength of the relationship itself.
