Different Relationships

Good Night,

My problem is how to get the site to stop assuming every partnership is a marriage. It has caused some problems with people because they are furious that the system says "husband" or "wife" of someone they were never married to. Any Ideas? Maybe being able to just say partner ... some people are very "touchy" when they see their husband's former partners (those with children) being listed as ex-wife .. and visa-versa

Hi Krishna,

 

The default relationship is indeed "Marriage" but you can change the status as you wish.

Please read this FAQ post on how to make the changes:

How do I show partners in my Family Tree Builder tree?

Best regards,

There is an option "partner", but there is a mistake in the programme, for example I have a relative, who had a partner first and then married someone else. If I put it that way, the tree says he has a wife, but at the same time a partner. That made the wife really furious! So I had to put the first partner as divorced, although divorced means he was supposedly married, so it looks like he was twice married. That made him and the ex-partner furious! So this thing needs correcting! Best wishes, Rita

Hi Rita,

Thank you for writing to us.

You can mark the ex-partners as separated, which is an option that we already offer. If you would like us to add other statuses, please let me know what you suggest.

Regards,

Aviv

Thank you, but if I put the ex-partner as separated, the tree assumes, that the partner was a wed wife or a husband. So it doesn't have an different options for "divorced" and "separated" which would be ideal for separating official  married couples and non-married couples. Best regards, Rita
