A REQUEST THAT WEBFORMS BE UPDATED TO INCLUDE “MR. & MR.,” etc.

Whenever I come across a web form that offers multiple salutation options that include “Mr. & Mrs.” but no other 2-person combos, I send them an email similar to the following. I hope you’ll do the same:

Hey folks,

I’m glad you’re out there as a resource. I’m writing to ask that you update your forms. You offer the options of “Ms.”, “Mr.,” “Mrs.,” “Mr.& Mrs.,”etc.

… but no “Mr. & Mr.” and no “Mrs. & Mrs.” or “Ms. & Ms.

My strong suggestion: either remove Mr.&Mrs., or add the other options as well.
