Blimey - remind me to never ring you up. I hate being snubbed... and I
really hate not knowing if a couple cohabiting are (a) married, but using
different surnames (b) unmarried and using different surnames or (c) sharing
a surname. It shouldn't matter, but as aforesaid - I don't like to be
snubbed and it happens if I get the wrong end of the stick. I mean...
several couples I know slightly may or may not be married... how would I
know, if they don't (a) display wedding pics or (b) tell me?
