I wouldnt worry about it too much… most people will still say Miss. People are lazy and dont like the extra syllable haha

I have no idea why feel that way. I personally still get Miss a lot unless people know for a fact I am married. I also have no problem with being called Mrs – because I am one!!

When you are a Dr. people will call you by that name!

Mr. and Dr. Calypso.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think even if you don’t take your husband’s last name legally, you’re still socially Mrs. HusbandLastName? You’ll never be Mrs. MaidenName.

I didn’t take DH’s name, so I’m technically a Ms., but I do get called Miss a lot, and it kind of bugs me. Hi, see these rings? Married lady coming through!

Funnily enough I don’t mind it when people call me Mrs. HisLast, I guess because it’s only casually and not official. I do balk at Mrs. HisFirst HisLast, though. Whether I took his last name or not, my first name hasn’t changed, people! /mini rant

I do understand what you mean, though. When Darling Husband and I got to our hotel room after the wedding, the hotel had set out a bottle of wine and two glasses for us with a card saying, “Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. G!” My first reaction was, “Awwww!” My second reaction was, “Wow, I feel old”.

You don’t have to be a Mrs., you can be a Ms.! Other than Miss or Mrs., Ms. is to address a woman without a reference to her marital status. At least that is what I learned in English class.

But I understand what you mean about feeling old. After the wedding, DH’s nephew started calling me Auntie.  Everytime I hear it, it still makes me look around to figure out who he is talking to.

@AprilJo2011: Just wait till someone starts calling you Mom.  Then you will really feel old. Smile

yeah I didn’t like it either. And I don’t have the greatest relationship with my Mother-In-Law so I hate being called that anyway, because I think of my MIL!! ugh. 

most people just call me by my first name, so I’m good for now 🙂

i didnt change my name but i find that people use my surname so rarely its not an issue if they think im a Ms or a Mrs,  i mean how often do you get called Miss Surname on a daily basis?  unless you are a teacher im guessing its not often

I am a teacher …. haha, and going from Miss S to MRS D has been SUPER WEIRD. But… funnily enough… you get used to it! 🙂

I have been married for a year and NO ONE has called me Mrs. I still put Ms. on everything. Always have always will.

I don’t understand why my title has to change just because I am married.

I will also have the title of Dr. in a year but I don’t really like it and will still go by Ms. socially!

You’re not crazy. I hate when people call me “ma’am.”
