wedding invitation question

We are listing our parent's names on the invitation.  My fiance's parents are divorced - his dad remarried but his mom did not. 

When I add his mother's name, do I add in "Mrs." or "Ms."

This is what it looks like now:

May and Ryan,
together with their parents,
Mr. and Mrs. May, Mr. and Mrs. Ryan, and Mrs. Ryan (or is it Ms. Ryan)

Thanks!

    I think that's up to her.  She could use either.

    Along with their parents

    Ooh - that's a tough one!  We just put "together with their parents" and left it at that.   :)  Are you putting first names?   After the divorce but before she remarried, my mom went by Mrs. Jane Doe (married name).

    I agree with PP that you should probably just ask what she prefers.

    Sorry that I'm no help!

    I would ask her - it's a personal preference as to how divorced women like to be referred to. Some keep Mrs. MarriedName, some use Ms. MarriedName, or some use Ms. MaidenName. I would definitely ask her before printing because you wouldn't want to offend her or just go with "together with their parents."

    i think i'm going to take the advice of those who did "along with their parents" - seems the easiest and best way to avoid any hurt feelings.  thanks!!!
