Hi to all you mrs and mr,
last night we visited a few american friends of ours and the topic of the name after marrying came up.
My question was, why is it, when we get invitations, that I am called mrs. Michael Jones (Jones is not my real name of course), why not mrs. Renee Jones.
I din't get a real answer, but one of the men was quite pissed off, as I said that I think this is a not political correct adressing of women. Boy, he was really mad at me and called me one-of-those-womeniberators-still-running-around-who-don't- know-what-to-do-with-their-time.
(I admit he had a few beers and a few "shots" of Tequilla, but still..........)
His wife didn't say a thing, just sat there being (really!!) beautiful and also, the other 2 women couldn't or wouldn't really answer my question.
The other guys just said, that's the way it was always done and always will be done.
Now that is an argument for me
I didn't want to get into more discussion with this angry ex-marine (he is huge you know, his neck is so thick I could never get my hands around it, even if I tried
So the rest of the evening was pretty cool and we were at home hours earlier as aspected.
So can you give me an answer? Is this really still done everywhere? Or just on official invitations from government and so on?
I really want to know, how you all feel about this!!
Thanks, take care, Renee
PS: Tracy, one of you 2, could it be I have met a real redneck last night?
