Point of Etiquette

I don't care whether you address your comments or queries to me as "Jenny" or as "Ms. Rappaport". Just please keep in mind that I have never been nor will I ever be, "Mrs. Rappaport". Thank you. =)

You'd never consider marrying a man with the same last name as you? Not even if he's dashingly handsome, independently wealthy and loves you more than Romeo loves Juliet?

Not even then Ms. Rappaport? Not even then!?!?

I think you're missing an opportunity to refer to yourself as "Rappa J"

In high school, since my brother and I both ran cross-country, they dubbed him "Little Rapp". It took him forever to live down the name. =)

I've been fighting that fight for the entire 11+ years of my marriage.

There IS something to be said for the Regency period -- they understood etiquette.

I hope everyone who reads this blog gets a chance to go over and read what jmeadows is doing on her blog about queries. It's really very good.

Sorry if I offended you by calling you "Mrs." Since I was an extremely new reader to your blog, I just went with the title used by the person commenting before me. I should have done my own research.

I'm married, and I still bristle when people call me "Mrs." Or worse, "Mrs. Hubby's-full-name."

I did take Hubby's surname, not the whole damn thing, and I never use his first name (think Hillary Rodham Clinton). And has everyone forgot that the whole point of "Ms." was that like men, women shouldn't be defined by their marital state, whether married or single?
