How to address a letter to two gentlemen

Updated February 21, 2017

Addressing a letter is no longer simple, as there are so many different methods of addressing others. Those with titles, such as a judge or a doctor, should be addressed using their title. Married couples should be addressed as such, but oftentimes people are confused how to address same-sex couples, and then there are couples who live together but are not married. Etiquette professionals and wedding experts provide advice as to how to address just about anyone in a letter.
