This was a hot topic of discussion well argument in the office today.
The basic question was why should a woman have her marrital status divulged every time she fills in a form where a man doesnt? So a woman has to say if she's a miss or a mrs whereas a man is just mr.
The hospital situation was raised where a woman may have to sign a form saying that she's not a mrs because same sex marriages arent allowed but she may have a civil partner who is next of kin. Why should she have to give all that information when a man would just sign mr
some people suggested using ms. but no one really likes that either
What do you think? Should we give up on mr/mrs/miss and just use firstname/surname? or should every one be either ms or mr
