When some one calls you Mrs. (whatever your last name is) do you automatically look for your MIL?

I have been married for 13 years and no one hardly ever calls me Mrs. I know with my kids starting school it will be coming, but I would much rather be called by my first name, or some variation of.

  • No. I've been married 13 years and people call me Mrs. every day. I haven't seen my MIL in 5 years and especially since they got married after us, I don't even think of that as her last name.

  • Nope, don't have a MIL. If I were to be confused with anyone it would be the former Mrs. ___.... my husband's ex-wife. She kept his last name.

  • I did when I first got married because I wasn't used to having that last name and I was used to hearing that being used for her. Now, definitely not. I was a teacher and I've been married for 15 years. So I'm used to being called that now.

  • Nope, there is NO WAY anyone would confuse me and my MIL...she is nuts.
