> Emme, I am so with you on this! I never changed my last name when I got married and I get called "Mrs. Myhusbandslastname" all the time. It doesn't bother me, it just lets me know that someone has not done his homework!! This will not impress me!

Neutral. Exactly. I do think women should be called whatever they like. Mrs. Ms. But it bugs me when the assumption of marital status and/or name preference is made ahead of time rather than starting neutral until they have a chance to clarify. I want Ms. for myself.

Speaking of the name thing, it could get interesting if I ever marry and end up giving a child my last name. Just hypothetical at the moment. But you see, my last name will end with my generation b/c no boys have been born. My cousins and I were talking about it recently. Was it Pegasus who's planning to do that?
