Full Answer

"Mr." is used as the form of address for each man. For women who are a couple, very similar etiquette rules apply. The only difference is the form of address. For a married couple, either "Ms." or "Mrs." is used, depending upon their preferences. However, if one member of a same-sex couple self-identifies as the opposite gender and prefers the form of address associated with that gender, that title should be used.
