General Writing and Grammar Help/Plural form of Mrs

Advertisement


Question
Dear Jannie,

Good day to you.

Please tell me the plural of Mrs.

For e.g A man has 2 wives and I have to write their names as

Mrs. XYZ inviting you on the party.

How would i write it. Your immediate reply in this regard will be appreciated.

Regards

JB

Answer
You cannot.

There is no such thing in the English language.

You would have to structure the sentence as:

Mr. XYZ's wives would like to invite you to their party.

Or:

The wives of Mr. XYZ would like to invite you to their party.

Your sentence didn't make structural sense and is incorrect.
