    either way would be acceptable. sometimes it is thought the (family) member's name is first- then their spouse; some always think the man's name should come first (as in Mr. & Mrs.) and some believe the female name should be first. i have always based it on the same way i would address an envelope to the same couple.

    His name, then hers, after all he is your nephew first.
