Dear Queenie,

  I’ve been divorced for almost 15 years and I never know what to put on a form that asks for my marital status.

  Queenie, should I still say “divorced” or can I start to say “single” again?—Questionnaire Etty Ket

Dear Etty Ket,

  No matter how long you have been divorced, you are still a divorcee – a person who used to be married. Calling yourself “single” is no longer accurate.
