Etiquette Snob here… lol

Talk about cutting off one’s nose… to spite one’s face !!
OP you are offended because you don’t like the way that a Wedding Invite came to you… showing the traditional form of address:
Mr & Mrs John Doe
As someone else said, perhaps you have too much time on your hands so as to worry about such a trivial first-world problem.
And as noted… in regards to your Original Posting… you also have your facts wrong:
If you were a Dr. then it would have been Dr. Jane Doe & Mr. John Doe…
Which makes me think… WHY then wouldn’t the man be offended… that YOU the Dr. who just so happened to have the ability … be that brains or financial to get a higher level of education come first ???
Forms of address are indeed based on Traditonal Etiquette… BUT as noted by other Bees, they are easy enough to “correct” to whatever format someone prefers
You just indicate YOUR Preferance when you reply.
In so much, as Proper Etiquette dictates that consideration for a Guest’s comfort is of utmost importance…
But I digress, from my main point.
I am waaay more offfended by your referring to / calling the person (we don’t know for a fact it was the Bride) who addressed this Wedding Invite as:
A STUPID REPUBLICAN WHO DIDN’T KNOW ANY BETTER
To bring this up, mention it in your post… is well BEYOND Tasteless…
[moderated for namecalling, snark]
Seriously… this is the hill you want to die on today ??

The USA was formed into a country almost 250 Years ago, bringing together the North & South, East & West… Republicans & Democrats alike, into one republic.
And yet you’d prefer to reflect upon a time when the “Yankee battled the Confederates”… how when one group felt it was some how more worthy / supreme / or smarter than another.
You have much larger problems in life than how your mail is addressed !!

For the record, I am not a Republican, Democrat… or even an American.
