I don’t want to be called Mrs. then my FH’s name for example Mrs. John Smith. I have my own name and my own identity and I will not be just so and so’s wife. I wanted to be called Mrs. and then my name and his last name. Example: Mrs. Jane Smith but i have heard that that way is only for women who’s husbands have passed away. Is that true? So what can I call myself after marriage that will include my own name? What will you bees be called after marriage?

@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.

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.”. :-/

I have only heard of that from the old generations.
