Scenario #1: I would think using “The Jones Family” would be OK if she still uses his last name.  Or you’d have to do Mr. Joe Jones and Ms. Jane Jones and family

Scenario #2: I think either option you have is fine.

Scenario #3: Ms. Betty Boop and Mr. John Johnson

Scenario #4: just use two lines for the names

Rev. Dr. Michael B. Smith, IV, Esq.

and Rev. Dr. Margaret B. Johnson, Esq.

Those are tough! For Scenario # 3 I’d go with the female friend first. That’s what we did for non-married couples- addresseing the first lien to the friend of ours and the significant other on line 2.

Good luck with the other three, hopefully someone else has better insight.

I think that the solutions mcnetn3 are pretty solid. However, from what I’ve read “Esq.” is a title that can be left off. It’s a term not used for formal (wedding) invitations, only for business correspondence. Doesn’t cut down too much, but makes things a bit shorter

1) “the jones family”. the stds usually only go 1 per household.

 the actual invite can be decided later, they may move apart, be on better terms or hate eachother immensly by then. if they still live together, i would send the invite to “the jones family” again. if they move apart, send an invite to both, include the kiddo on whoevers invite he lives with more.
i cant imagine they would be bringing guests, so i dont think its nessesary to send seperate invites to the same address.
you can also address it to
mr john jones
ms jane jones(or maiden name if she changes by then)
123 street rd
city st zip.

then put the kids name on the inner envelope. if there is no inner envelope, add jimmy jones under moms name.

2)
mr robert smith (unmarried couples have their own lines on the address)
ms jane doe
junior doe
123 street rd
city st zip.

3)
mr john johnson  (traditionally the mans name goes first, but i would probably do hers first if she were my friend)
ms betty boop
123 street rd
city st zip.

4) either how you have it, or seperate it into 2 lines so it will fit. or “the smith-johnson family” if they have kids
