We are addressing envelopes for an upcoming wedding. Please tell us whether to write the address of a married couple (who probably do not want to be addressed Mr. and Mrs. John Goodman) as
(1) Mr. John and Mrs. Jane Goodman
OR
(2) Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Goodman.
Thank you!

The second sounds better, it’s how you would introduce them verbally, so I would suggest going with option 2.

Mr. John and Ms. Jane Goodman is correct.
