Parents not married

How do i enter parents of a child that were not married?  I've tried to enter them as friends or partners, but when I look at the book report, it still says that the parents were married.  how can i show them as the correct parents but never married?

I put in "Other" instead of "Married" and then put in the notes that they were not married.

I contacted MyHeritage about this problem early this year.  Here is the answer I received in March, 2008;

 We have had a couple of reports about this issue before and we are currently working at fixing this error. It is only with these output method that state the information like this. It does not mean that the information is entered this way, it just means that the text is static, or dumb text that does not read the relationship tags. I will update you when there are any developments with this.

Since that was six months ago, I am going to contact Aviv again.

Hello

I am new to this program and ran into the same problem.  Has anyone figured out a good solution yet?

Thanks for posting so I did not feel alone!

Hi,

If you change the status of the relationship to Partners,

they will not be shown as married.

Click on the Edit link in the family box, and change the status.

That only makes the relationship change to "Partners".  If there are children of one of the partners and the other partner is not the childrens' parent, the FTB still shows both partners as the parents.

How do you list this relationship correctly?:

Mother has two children and partner is not the father.  Do not wish to list the father at all even as unknown.

Hi Pat,

FTB 5, which we will release very soon (a week or two) will support single parent families in an improved fashion.

You will be able to add a child to one of the spouses, but under a different family,

without adding a new parent.

Noam,

That is great news.  How will the release of new software be announced?

Thanks for letting me know.  The Family Tree web app is able to do this.  I am glad to see that the FTB will now mirror that same functionality.

 

Best regards,

Hi,

I have added a child to a single parent family but when I print the chart it prints a mother - greyed out - and says the father has been married to her (which he has not).  Is there a way around this please?  As I have been trying for 2 days without success. Thanks.
