Q: I’m confused about how to write to some of my friends. What’s the correct way to address a married couple when the wife has kept her own name? What about addressing a couple who live together but aren’t married?
A: In addressing the married couple, write their names on the same line: “Ms. Carolyn Smith and Mr. Anthony Simpson.” In the case of an unmarried couple who live together, write the names on separate lines:
Ms. Mary Jones
Mr. Calvin King
