@USAandKSA: Well for the invites that I am sending I will be inviting Mrs. Jane and Mr. Jon Smith, not Mr. and Mrs. Jon Smith.

When would someone else call your Mrs. Jon Smith?

I definately don’t like the idea of being Mrs. HisFirst HisLast. I asked Mr. Roux, and he said it makes it sound like someone is calling him a woman, not someone referring to me. I think the tradition of Mrs. HisFirst HisLast is dying out. I think being called Mrs. YourFirst HisLast is fine these days, and most wouldn’t think it meant you were widowed or divorced.

@Roux:  I agree.  I never think that a lady is a widow when I hear that.  I don’t like Mrs. HisFirst HisLast either.. it’s never sounded right to me… like Mr. Roux said, it always sounded like someone calling the man a “Mrs.”.  :-/
