 Marriages

If someone has multiple spouses, a dropdown menu will appear above their name.  Choosing a different name from the dropdown menu will switch to that couple's record and their children.  In this list in parentheses is the number of children for that couple.

To add or edit marriage (or divorce) information for a couple:

* Click the block in the center above a couple's names, OR
* Choose "Edit Marriage" from the "Actions" menu, OR
* Press =, which corresponds to the "Edit Marriage" from the "Actions" menu

The order of the spouses in the dropdown menu is based on first the marriage date, and then second by first name for those that don't have marriage dates.  So where possible, define a marriage date or approximate date.

There are also several feasibility checks based on the marriage date, and these are only possible when the date is defined.
