Addressing Invitations for non married guests

I started addressing invitations recently and I have been addressing single and non married couples starting with Ms. and Mr.   I think it's more formal and respectful to give everyone a title. However FI and I just received a wedding invitation and there was no Ms. or Mr. before either of our names.  I feel a little offended because why should married couples be the only ones with titles? lol  The wedding is not a casual affair either, so I'm not sure why titles were not included.

How is everyone addressing their invitations to single guests and non married couples?

    We did Mr. and Ms. not everyone knows proper etiquette so they have may taken the informal route with their invites.

    We're doing Mr. and Ms. but FI thought that was weird when I first told him. I think he understands why now.

    Just remember more likely than not they did it on accident, not because they're trying to be rude. Some people just don't think of it.

    I am just going to ditto everything Schatzi said :) Definitely give EVERYONE a title, but when they are not married, we are putting them on separate lines. The person who is actually the friend/guest/family member goes on the top line, with the 'guest' on the bottom line.
