Can you tell me how to do this (if it is possible on this program) so that it doesn't show as another marriage? For instance, my brother had a child with his former fiancee', but they never married. Now my brother is married and has two other children with his wife. When I followed your directions, everything was right (half-sibs, etc), except it shows that my brother was married twice, which isn't accurate. Is there a way to correct this, or do I just need to make notes about it?
What you will need to do is display your brother with the former fiancée and then click on EDIT on the right hand side of the box BELOW the boxes of your brother and his former fiancée.
Next click on the top line which should say "Edit details of (brother) and (former fiancée')"
This should display another window where at the bottom you should see details of the marriage (or in this case nothing, as they never got that far), however, if you click the drop down on the very bottom field, you can change the status from 'Married' to something more suitable such as 'Friends'
After clicking on OK you should then find that the status changes from Married to Friends as you switch between the two partners for you brother.
I've tried the directions sent to Shelly for adding in my biological son from a previous relationship to show as my current wife's step-son. The problem is, the system now shows my ex-girlfriend (son's mother) as the step-mother of my daughter (with my current wife). I was never married to ex-gf, my daughter came long after we'd broken up and I have tried the "friends", "unknown" and "other" status. Nothing works. Any advice from anyone will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
