I've been officially divorced for a year, and decided to keep my married surname just for convenience and because I'm so used to it (even though I prefer my maiden name). I also just carried on using Mrs, again as I'm so used to is. Is this the norm, do women who keep their married surname generally start calling themselves Miss again or is Mrs ok? I know it's my choice what to call myself I just wondered if I was odd for being Mrs MarriedName even though me and exH are history. What does everyone else use?
I wanted to keep my married name when I got divorced maiden name was horrific but it seems to really confuse people that I'm a Mrs! I'm in a same sex relationship and people seem to want to call me miss or Ms. Drives me potty!!
I'm not even divorced yet (will be in the next few months) but I am keeping my married name because of the children but I'm going by "Ms". Sounds more grown up than "Miss" but as an unmarried it doesn't feel right to use "Mrs".
You can do whatever you like. I've kept Mrs because I don't like the sound of Ms and my married name because I prefer it, can't be bothered with the hassle of changing it and it's the same a my DC.
There is also the small possibility that it might piss off XHs partner (who was the OW) in the event that they get married. That would simply be a bonus though and isn't the reason I've changed nothing
