Post subject:  Sinhalese lady and an English man

Dear Sir/Madam,

I recently attend a wedding between a Sinhalese lady and an English man and was told by the bride that she would be keeping her name all the time as it was required by Sri Lankan custom. As she is a doctor by profession I can understand her keeping her maiden name at work but if I send her and her new husband say a Christmas card do I have to address her by her maiden name as she said is required by Sri Lankan custom or could I address it to Mr and Mrs ######.

Please can you help.

Thank you.

Donna
