many find it fine for letters to be addressed to Mr and Mrs John Smith, but what if (for whatever reason; maybe the sender only knows the wife’s name, or is only friends with the wife, or is just sick of letters being addressed to John Smith and wanted to do something different) –what if, instead, you got a letter addressed to Ms and Mr Femalefirstname Femalelastname?
how would you feel? amused? upset? delighted? why?

I would be highly amused. I mean I don’t much else to say about that. It’s not that serious. Envelopes go in the trash so the amusement would be short lived.

I would feel confused, but that’s about it. I wouldn’t be up in arms about it.

I would just think it was… weird. Like, I really don’t think you need to be making a political statement (or whatever you want to call it) on a formal envelope. And really? you couldn’t check facebook or spend 30 seconds to find out what my husbands name is? (if that’s the reason)

I would just find it…odd. But I really couldn’t care less if it was addressed with my name, his name, or both of our names.

I also would find it very weird and really its just plain wrong. Id probably just think the person that wrote it is ahem acuse my rudeness but….not the brightest crayon in the box.

I would be offended that it demasculates my husband. NOT! I’ve got actual things in life to worry about.

It should always be Mr & Mrs Jane & John Doe in this day and age. Anything else is rude

I would think they were trying to make some kind of political statement.

I would laugh SO hard!
DH gets all the good mail in our house, so it would be great to get an invite to my name!

I personally believe that someone who takes that much time to inspect the envelope needs more hobbies in their lives.
I wonder if the person in that other post would turn down a CHECK made out to Mr. and Mrs. John Doe? Nope, that’s money.

I would be amused. But…it depends…
WE are sending out funny, casual wedding invites. They are in the least bit formal. The invites has a lot of jokes in it. So If I addressed it to Mrs and Mr. Female… Then they opened it…they’d get it. (instead of MR and MRS Male…)

Considering the last couple of weddings I have attended sent out their invitations via a Facebook group that the bride created… I would just be happy to be getting mail that wasn’t a bill.

@patchy: Funny. Sometimes I jokingly address my FI as Mr. Kerensa My lastname.
