to Doctor or not to Doctor?

I am in the early stages of a PhD, so there is a while until I will have to decide this but I am curious anyway. In 3 years, I will (all going to plan) have the official title of Dr. I am not sure whether or not to use this title. Is it pretentious? What do you think of somebody who tells you they are a doctor? Are you impressed? do you immediately think of a medical doctor?
I will probably be married by this point, and I think being a Mrs. is just as special as being a Dr.
What would you do?!
