Yup, that’s just went through my head when I got the mail and saw a letter addressed to Mrs. Hubbysfirstname Ourlastname .
It made me chuckle and I thought ‘guess they made a mistake and put the ‘s’ on without noticing’. So then I wondered who it was from so looked at the return address so I could laugh with them the next time I saw them. It was from my grandmother. So then I was confused because I was like ‘hub, why would my grandmother send you a letter and not include me on it.’ But as I was saying it I realized ohhhhhhhhhhh………it’s my birthday in a few days, the letter is to me, I’m Mrs. hubbysfirstname.
In other news my sweet husband is planning a surprise birthday party for me today (he’s not the best secret keeper but doesn’t know I know) so we are furiously cleaning and cooking so ‘we can have fun later’. Should be a good time! Happy Saturday!

They don’t think he’s a girl. It’s an old fashioned way of addressing it to you.
EDIT: Sorry I didn’t read your entire post

I used to think that was weird a lot when i was little. When I was at summer camp growing up, I had to address the letters to my grandmom : Mrs grandpop’sfirstname theirlastname.

When I first got married, my grandmother sent me a card as Mrs. Husband Lastname too. I think it’s sort of old fashioned that you don’t have your own first name anymore in their minds when you get married.

I think it is correct to use the husbands first name in your “title”. Of course your first name doesn’t actually change, but formally if you are married the correct way to address you is Mrs hisfirstname and last name.
I believe it is correct to use a woman’s first name with her last name only when the couple is divorced when using a title i.e. Mrs.

Thanks for the wishes. My family and his family showed up right after I posted this and met some friends for a picnic at a local winery.
Yeah, the name thing I knew, it just for some reason slipped my mind. Perhaps blame it on the blond hair. I don’t think I had received a card though addressed that way the whole time we were married and it’s been like 8 months. I haven’t officially changed my name and have my PhD so at work emails are mostly to Dr. Mylastname and at home they’re usually to Mrs. Myfirst Hislast or Ms. Mylast.
