Frankly I've never liked Ms because it's a horrible sound, and really hate being wrongly labelled Ms myself. If I didn't know which title someone preferred I think I would forego the title completely and simply write "Dear Forname Surname".

And for another note: Prior to the correct title of "Ms." I was always taught in school that if a woman is married and her husband is living, she would use his name. Example: Mrs. John Smith. If he was deceased or if she was divorced, then she could use Mrs. Sue Smith. Of course this is now thought of as antiquated thinking.
To sum it up, remember that a woman does not need to be married to gain respect nor does she have to show whether or not she is married in her title. Everyone should use "Ms." when addressing a woman.
Woman are EQUAL!

any divorced woman would want to be called "mrs." Please explain briefly why you have this opinion.
