Our French neighbours have told us to use "tu"

When asking if they have been away would you use vous as you are speaking to them as a couple? bit unsure on this

This relates to:
Conjugate être (je suis, tu es, vous êtes) in Le Présent (present tense) -

Bonjour Karen, Yes, you can only use tu when talking to/about one of them. When talking about both, even if you're only addressing one at the moment, use vous.

Thank you, I didn't want to seem awkward using vous!
