I have been married 5 years and have chosen not to change my surname to my husband's. My parents gave me the name Doll Dagga Buzzbuzz at birth.
On our joint account I am Ms. DG.Buzzbuzz as I prefer to be known as Ms. but on my passport and driving licence I am still Miss. Doll Dagga Buzzbuzz.
My passport is now due for renewal and I want to be officially known as Ms. Buzzbuzz but my husband says I will have to send off my marriage certificate to prove I am not a Miss anymore
I have typed the question into google and was advised that I can change my title from Miss. to Ms. by deed poll with a charge of £5
I thought oh fuck it I will remain a Miss. then I don't remember ever requesting to be addressed as Miss in the first place. I wouldn't care about the damn title but I don't want a load of hassle at the airport if my flight tickets do not exactly match the details on my passport. Isn't there an option of NO title? Could I just remain a Miss. to keep things simpler?
Um, I'm a bit confused by the question. I've just checked my passport (issued in 2004) and there is no title given at all - miss, ms, mrs or anything. I certainly didn't inform the passport office when I got married, as I too didn't change my name.
My husband has already completed my form and crossed the title Mrs. as he prefers. I don't mind as long as there is no hassle at the airport. I'm going to book my tickets today and I have to choose a title. I would really prefer no title at all.
So presumably the Miss/Ms is only for when the passport office address post to you.
Your husband is talking out of his arse, there is not 'proof' that you are Ms not Miss. They are interchangeable. AFAIK you could go about calling yourself Mrs Maidenname if you like, it's only change of name that requires documentation.
