I think that depends. Did they revert to their maiden name or keep the ex's name? Generally, I think Ms, is the PC, all-in-one title.

Ma'am for a woman of a certain age. But I am, I fear, fairly old fashioned in this day and age.

P.S. You kids, get off my lawn.

Though I know it is just polite, and I do live in a semi-Southern area - I hate it when people call me ma'am. :(

Indeed. I suspect my wife would not permit a mistress other than herself. or Herself for that matter. I had considered that thought earlier but discarded it as far too easy. And we know other posters here are much easier! :D

Well, she's exactly 23... She and her kids never changed names when she got married, so I think she's still by her default.

Miss probably works though she might have preferences as to how to be addressed Of course, you could simply ask her, m'dear. :D

Though, this from Emily Post might help.


Maiden name

Ms. Jane Johnson
Miss Jane Johnson*
*usually 'Miss' is for girls under 18

Married, keeping maiden name
Ms. Jane Johnson

Married, uses husband's name socially
Mrs. John Kelly
Mrs. Jane Kelly*
*Nowadays this is acceptable
Ms. Jane Kelly

Separated, not divorced
Mrs. John Kelly
Mrs. Jane Kelly
Ms. Jane Kelly

Divorced
Mrs. Jane Kelly
Ms. Jane Kelly
Ms. Jane Johnson (maiden name)

Widowed
Mrs. John Kelly*
*If you don't know the widow's preference, this is the traditional and preferred form
Mrs. Jane Kelly
Ms. Jane Kelly


Professional/Business Situations

Ms. is the default form of address, unless you know positively that a woman wishes to be addressed as Mrs.


Hopefully, this is helpful?

I've never liked being called sir, nor do I like the words sir or ma'am. I don't know why, but I've never been able to use those words seriously.

Seeing as I was in the military for 9+ years, the whole, sir and ma'am thing is pretty ingrained in the old noggin. I do know that if I call my wife ma'am it pisses her off, then its a good time had by all.

As for PSMB, it's the site that lead me to this great fount of knowledge so I am ever grateful for that site.
Thinking of starting WOW again....
