Mr. and Mrs. or Mr. and Dr.?
Posted 11 February 2010 - 05:31 AM
I have worked on my Doctoral degree for the past 7 years. When I introduce myself to others in formal situations, I say "My name is Dr....."
I know when a man has a Doctorate/MD/PhD/etc. and he's married, the newlywed couple is introduced as "Dr. and Mrs...."
Do you think it's appropriate to be introduced as "Mr. and Dr." or "Mr. and Mrs."?

According to etiquette, if you're interested, this was the answer:
Since the officiant will be introducing you two as a newly married couple, and not in a professional capacity, "Mr. and Mrs. Robbins" (for example) is more appropriate. If you tend to go by "Dr. Robbins" in most social situations -- if it's on your wedding invitation, for instance -- and really feel more comfortable being addressed as such, then of course you can use "Dr." Just keep in mind that the title is usually used in social situations by medical doctors only.
