Etiquette Question of the Week 4/6/09

Q: How do I address an invitation to a married couple where the woman kept her married name and is a doctor and the man is not a doctor. Do their names go on separate lines?

A: This is a great question. For the example, let's say that the name of the woman is Jane Jones and the name of the man is Dan Smith. The degreed individual is listed first and yes - their names are listed on separate lines:
Dr. Jane Jones
Mr. Dan Smith

Let's say that the woman was a doctor who took her husbands name it would be:
Dr. Jane and Mr. Dan Smith

Or both were doctors:
Drs. Jane and Dan Smith
