Your marriage certificate along with your proof of name change is all the documentation you need to prove you're married. Tell your husband to join the rest of us in the 21st Century where women often don't take their spouse's surname.

Laugh at him. There's a paper trail.

If your certificate has your 1st married name then that is not your maiden name. Your maiden name would be the surname you had before you married your 1st husband. You must be 1 hot tamale.

If you have a marriage certificate then that's all the "proof" of marriage you need.
Your name doesn't mean jack shiiiiit in terms of your marital status.

There's very few things these days that ever require certified proof of marriage, so his concerns are unfounded, but if you did and you got someone very strict you would have to present your current ID, certified name change documents, and your marriage certificate. Otherwise the only issue you have is when dealing with some things people may assume you are not married or if you have kids they may think they are not yours. Things like traveling aboard with your (hypothetical) kids could be more difficult without additional paperwork. It's irritating, but certainly not the end of the world.
Otherwise I'm sure your husband is thinking of excuses since he is frustrated with the situation. It would be natural for him to think that if your ex's name was good enough why wouldn't his be. The name you chose is a personal decision, but if you are letting your previous divorce effect that it isn't always the best mindset to start out a new marriage.

Your marriage certificate is the proof that you're married, not the use of your husband's surname. Your husband is quite wrong in thinking that because you didn't take his name that you're not married. The marriage certificate is the only proof required.

It's nonsense. The certificate was signed by a Registrar, makes no difference what name was on it , it is still you.

Your husband is clueless.
It's your marriage certificate that proves your marriage, not the name you use.
