I hope this helps clear up some confusion about the convention "Mr./Ms.": "Ms." is different from "Miss" and does not indicate marital status. A Google search yields the following: "'Ms.' is a title of respect before a woman's name or position that does not indicate her marital status."
This came up in school many years ago. I'm surprised I still remember. Lol.
