See, for example-Martina Navratilova

Of course no gender discrimination, but for no English speaking it should be useful specify gender in some cases, when the person married hasn't an evidently gender name. For me, for example, the name Marla was not an evidently gender name.

Thanks for your imput Jimbo. We will see if there is any other feedback.
