Why was Abigail still called "Nabal's wife" even after she married David?

In several places, every time Abigail is mentioned (after she married David), it's always said "Abigail, Nabal's wife". Besides the above-mentioned verse, there are several other verses: 1 Sam. 30:5, 2 Sam. 2:2 and 2 Sam. 3:3.
Any opinion/comment about this?

1 Samuel 27:3

YLT - 3 And David dwelleth with Achish in Gath, he and his men, each one with his household, [even] David and his two wives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail wife of Nabal the Carmelitess.
