  • None of the above. I prefer to be called by my first name. I have been married 15 years and still think it weird to be called Mrs. H________. Mrs. H_____ is my mother inlaw.

  • I really don't care, to be honest. In formal situations I usually go by Ms. though, I guess.

  • None of the above. Mrs. _______ is my MIL. The other one I have to deal with is from my husband's church. They all want to call me Sister _____, even though I'm not a member. I've been married to him for 9 years, I STILL don't always respond to that one. I understand and accept that it is an honorific like Miss/Ms./Mrs., but it's not one I like.

  • Ms in all cases. There is no reason for your marital status to be announced. Men have an all-purpose "Mr" so why not an all-purpose "Ms". However, I tend to simply use people's first names before their family names. Much simpler and not sexist :)
