I'd be quite happy to be called Miss or Mrs - I don't really see the point in Ms.
As a male I've been advised to adress a woman as "ma'am". A couple of women have said they prefer this. Do other women concur?
Yay for Tufts and Brouhaha! You make good points.
I love this thread. Shame I didn't find it earlier. I was talking about this with my boyfriend and it turns out he's desperate to change his name... so the current boyf I wouldn't have a problem. Going from Miss to Mrs of the same name would be weird though. I think I prefer Ms.
