Oh, I didn’t even think of this, but you know I think I would be annoyed with being called Mrs. HisFirst HisLast. It would be Mrs. Timothy Kissinger, which isn’t bad, but it seems weird to me. I just want to stay Mrs. Ariel Kissinger. I mean I won’t mind it if the pastor says “I now intoruduce to you, Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Kissinger” , or people putting it down on a formal invite that way or somehting, but I don’t think I would want someone to say “This is Mrs. Timothy Kissinger.” that is weird to me.

I also agree with the waiter thing, no offense, but there is no way he knew you were a Dr. He didn’t know you, and they say miss because it’s their job to be polite. I think you were over sensitive in that case.

I would probably go with what you want regardless of what ettiquette says. You know you are a doctor and so do your friends and family. Title or no title the Mrs. hisfirst hislast business is just plain annoying to me.

Obviously, as pointed out above, you can keep it, but if you want to be super old school, I believe you can use your professional name and your married name in parenthesis, e.g.

 

Dr. Marie Curie (Mrs. Pierre Curie)

Jennifer Lopez (Mrs. Marc Antony)
