Why do people often assume that Becky (H/A/F) is married although she isn't and she never has?

This is probably going to be very easy.

is her age relevant? her name? has she changed her last name? is it different to that of her parents? is there a particular person they think she is married to? would they get this impression after speaking to her? seeing what she looks like? learning a certain fact about her?

is her first name relevant?last name? middle name? her title (miss,mrs, ms etc)? do they assume that her last name is that of her husband? is the certain fact about her just her name? is the practice of taking your husband's name after marriage relevant?

Is her last name's ethnicity relevant? i.e. if she is named Becky Nakamura but looks nothing Japanese, but she actually is (partially) Japanese? But people think she married a Mr. Nakamura?

********SPOILER********
I have a friend whose name is Jane Smith-Doe (Well, it's not, but you know what I mean). People often assume that she's married to a Mr Doe and that her maiden name is Smith, but actually everyone in her family is called Smith-Doe. It's only one surname but it consists of two parts.
