    I automatically refer to women as Ms, it seems to be the norm in my profession and it sort of carried over from there.  I’ll prefer it after I’m married, too.  Miss seems young, Mrs. makes me think of teachers.  Ms. is good and neutral.

    I teach.  At school I’m referred to Ms., Mrs., and Miss.  It doesn’t really even matter to me.

    Well I didn’t change my name so I prefer Ms.  But if someone doesn’t know that I kept my name and refers to me as Mrs. Hislast name I’m fine with that too.

    I voted Mrs but no one addresses me by any sort of title in daily life.

    Oops, I voted wrong (that’s what I get for having one eye on the football game, one eye on WB).  I meant to say I am married and go by Mrs, although I voted for Ms.    I haven’t been able to change my name legally yet because we’re still in the midst of the immigration process, but once that comes through, I will change my last name and legally be Mrs. Darling Husband

    Socially, I don’t care if someone refers to me as Mrs. or Ms., though I prefer Ms.  It is very unprofessional to refer to a woman as Mrs. in the busines world.

    I voted Mrs. because I’m married and I’ve never liked Ms. It just seems impersonal to me. However, I still feel too young to be Mrs, but it doesn’t matter since no one calls me any of these things with any frequency

    When I get married, I will be taking his last name so I will want to be called Mrs. (I can’t wait for it). If I was keeping my last name now, I would want to continue to be called Ms.

    I’ve never heard of anyone being called Ms. unless they are divorced, so these responses are such a surprise to me!  Once we are married, I’ll go by Mrs.

    I just feel like Mrs. makes me sound old. I prefer Ms.
