How to address to . . .

Recommended Posts

A legally married gay couple? My fiancee's cousin is from MA where gay marriage is legal. I am in a position where I don't know exactly if his spouse took the cousin's last name, or how to properly address the save the date cards. I mean, for hetero couples, it is "Mr. and Mrs" . . . what do you do for a "Mr. and Mr." if they are married?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

This is what I found by googling:

 

Gay couples are listed on two lines, with the most familiar partner listed first.

 

Mr. Paul and John Smith (depending on the last name they use and who you are most familiar with listed first).

 

Gay Married Couple with the same last name

Outer: The Messrs. Elton and David John

Inner: The Messrs. John

Gay Married Couple with different last names

Outer: Mr. Elton John and Mr. David Furnish

Inner: Mr. John and Mr. Furnish

Amy is a Google-n' Girl!

You know, I have an aunt who got legally married to her partner. I sent the invitation to Mrs. & Mrs. Giron-Smith (since they didn't change their last names) I put my aunts last name first.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
