    Just use your married name for all your future applications to be sure.

    All documents need to use the same name. And sure, you are not required to use your maiden name, but the use of one name needs to be consistent.

    But now that you have used the married name for the visa, you will need to provide proof of the marriage with any application that you make.....and your application is in your maiden name..............

    You have to make a decision as to what is going to be your legal name and use that only for all legal documents. Since you made your visa application in your married name, that is what you will need to go by. That is what the US government will use for all of your documents.
