I received an invite to a wedding today under the title of ‘Ms.’. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find this very insulting. I know it was unintentional to insult, but I can’t help feeling that way. As if us as widows haven’t had enough bullshit, this is just another one to add to the list.
I didn’t divorce, I didn’t choose this, I simply was the one who didn’t die. Why should that make me into a Ms instead of the Mrs I consider myself?! It’s like my in-laws who insist on sending mail to me in my maiden name (how fucking insulting is that!!). I took my husband’s name upon marriage, I became a Mrs., and in no way should this stop me from remaining Mrs *enter husband’s name here*.
So Fuck ‘Em!! I’m a ‘Mrs.’ dammit, and no one can force me otherwise!
