The Marriage Certificate

Marriage is a wonderful institution and brings with it many benefits. One such benefit, one you would least expect, is the marriage certificate itself. The marriage certificate records the husband and wife’s details which include the couples surnames at the time the marriage certificate is issued. It records the husband’s surname and the wife’s surname, i.e. her maiden name. It does not, however, show the name either of them will hence be known by.

Social Titles

British Social titles include Mr, Mrs, Ms, Miss. Some of these, for example Mrs or Miss, have been customarily associated with your marital status.  However, there is no legal restriction on changing your social title and it is perfectly possible for a single woman to take on the title of Mrs, without getting married, as it is possible for a married woman to take the title of Miss or Ms.
