Mrs. if the person knows me or knows I’m married. Ms. is fine if it’s a stranger or someone who doesn’t know my marital status.

I prefer Mrs., but for work I prefer Ms. Drives my husband crazy, but I don’t think marital status should matter for business related purposes.

A Mrs is reserved for people who have changed their name.  I have retained my name, so I am a Ms.

I don’t have a preference – as long as they use MY first name, not my husbands. I hate being called Mrs. Hisfirst Hislast.

I’m not sure why, but it somehow feels more appropriate.

Definitely Ms. Males don’t change the prefix of their name based on age or marital status – why should females?

I actually prefer Firstname Lastname (with no title at all which is how things are done here), but if someone wants to give me a title when writing to me, I’d prefer they used Ms. I won’t be bothered if my husband’s family use Mrs., but they’re probably the only people likely to use any title at all.

Mrs definitely when I become one, Ms seems a bit strange it makes me think of someone who kill her husband or going through divorce.

Its a good thing to say Mrs then people know you are taken less annoying men after you maybe.
