How to address married couples using BOTH of the first names? ?

Please Don't tell me to write Mr. And Mrs. John Smith, even if it is "tradition". Not trying to be all feminism or anything I just heard they used to address married couples that way because the woman was considered a "property". We live in year 2012, i personally think its rude not to include the wife's first name regardless. My question is, which way sounds better?

A) Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith

Or

B) Mr. John and Mrs. Jane Smith

Thanks

    You could use any of the above for some thing formal. But for everyday use Jane and John Smith or John and Jane Smith.

    Mr john and jane smith is for ceremonies and all other greetings

    Mr john smith and Mrs jane smith is for invitations

    Mr and Mrs John and Jane smith is political correct for all of the above

    Skip the Mr./Mrs.

    Jane and John Smith

    (A man's given name should stay with his surname. Ladies first.)

    Mr. and Mrs. John Smith ....

    second one from your list, or:

    Mrs. Jane Smith

    Mr. John Smith

    on the envelope-

    and I would even suggest using Ms. Jane Smith instead of Mrs. if you want to be less traditonal.
