I don’t know. Just what is basically correct? I know Mrs. John Doe is not preferred.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It’s a Christmas card. Simple sorry I’ve spent this time finding out
Etiquette Expert: JohnACM, Etiquette Coach replied 7 months ago
Actually, it depends on if she has retained her husbands name.. If she has, it is Mrs. If not, it is Miss.
