Mr. is an abbreviation for Mister, Mrs. is an abbreviation for what? - Louis - 06-10-2014

Mrs. is an abbreviation for "mistress," the feminine form of "mister," which in turn originally meant "master."
Over time, the pronunciation of the married title slurred, and the term came to mean "paramour" or "kept woman" when pronounced in full.
