For a US Citizen to marry in CEbU, you will need a court certified copy of any prior divorces, and a Permission to marry form from the US Consulate at the Waterfront Hotel, Lahug Cebu City and your passport . I got married here in Feb 04 and have lived in Cebu for the last 2 years

No, there is no mentioning in the pages of a male holder of a US passport.

There may be a mention in the passport of the female holder that says: maiden name but not all passports do so.

My wife retained her maiden name and added my name with a hyphen such as xxx-yyy which is perfectly legal. There is no US law that requires the wife to change her name to that of the husband but the hypened adaption can be used also.

Children of that marriage will always have the last name of the husband even if the wife does not change her maiden name.
