There seems to be some disagreement on this title. Some say it is helpful and should be the go-to title. Others say that it is unhelpful, unattractive, unnecessary. But, as long as I’m on the topic, I’ll just explain how we use it. I find it a very helpful title, especially when addressing envelopes…
Ms. (Pronounced “Miz”)
This is the default title for women. It works for married or single ladies, so it is most helpful when you don’t know their marital status. If you know that they are divorced or widowed, but do not know yet what they prefer to go by, always use “Ms.”.
So, basically, if in doubt, use “Ms.”.
