Although Ariadne Oliver is usually referred to as 'Mrs.' nothing is known about any husband.
Agatha Christie herself said that the character of Ariadne Oliver does bear a strong resemblance to her own character and she wishes that she could also have had some of Ariadne's independent spirit and sense of adventure.
Our K&C 'Ariadne' reflects a degree of that 'independence' and 'strength of character'.
