Surnames for women

When listing a female surname, are you always supposed to list her maiden name? If you list the maiden name, and she married more than once, then on the second marriage her surname will be incorrect, as she no longer carries her maiden name.

For example, if her maiden name was Mary Burgh, and her surname from the first marriage were Lish, when she married a second time, it wouldn't be correct to say that Mary Burgh married so and so. It was actually Mary Lish who married husband #2.
