One of my guests I’d like to invite is an older man, I’d say 50s, who lives with his girlfriend of 20+ years (at her residence). *background: they both have kids & grandkids from their previous marriages.*
My guest also has his Doctorate.
How do I address the invitation if they’re not married but live at her house??

Mr. Dude’s Name and Ms. Girlfriend’s Name – “Mr. John Smith and Ms. Jane Doe”
Don’t worry about the doctorate unless he’s a medical doctor.

yup oregon has it, I think. Does this guy prefer to be called Dr. though? If he prefers his title,you can put Dr. John Doe.

hmmm… very intriguing. he could care less about his title, i think after all of the years of working for the government and the crap the school has put him through (he’s a liaison for the FDA & the University).

Woman goes first if unmarried or married and she didn’t change her name. So, it should be:
Ms. Jane Smith
Dr. Jim Johnson

We did the “and” instead of seperate lines for unmarried couples living together who were in a romantic relationship (not roommates). It’s not “technically” correct etiquette, but I have had friends (especially same sex couples) who are offended when their relationship is treated similarly to roommates! I think in this case, when the couple in question has been together 20+ years, it would be appropriate to acknowledge their relationship status.
