I’ve always been assumed to be younger than I am (most people probably wouldn’t think I look old enough to be married) so I’m actually looking forward to the matronly Mrs. thing. But I guess I can see where you’re coming from. It definitely is one of those, whoah.. I’m old now kind of things. But I’m sorry, I think the “Doctor” title ages you quite a bit as well! Lol, I can’t imagine being referred to as “Dr. Lastname.” (of course, I don’t nor will I likely ever have a doctorate, hahah)

I am a doctor, and I hate to break it to you, but even when you graduate, people will still call you Mrs. I get this ALL the time on mail and it drives me crazy.  I don’t think it is a snooty thing- I am fine if something is addressed to my name- either “Guitargirl” or “Dr. Guitargirl,” but not Mrs. Guitargirl.  All I ask is that you use my correct name, and if you choose to use a title, please use the correct one.

I totally feel you on this one!  I will also be Dr.! (In 4 years)  I think my aversion to Mrs. HisLastName is because a few members of his family (not his mother, thank God!) still think wives should be proper obedient servants to their husbands and their job is to raise a family. There is nothing wrong with that, but we feel that marriage should be an equal partnership.  I want to be as opposite of that as possible so I will be going by Dr.  🙂
