  5. 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. At that point, respectable married women ceased to ever spell out the title, and it has existed as a mumbled abbreviation ever since.
