    Handling types of Marriages

    Hi!

    I started the genealogy journey. Reunion 12 is great! I still have a couple of questions regarding marriage recording.

    In Mexico, my home country, weddings tend to be recorded in two ways: Civil marriage, and a religious marriage. Both of them are equally important. While those marriages tend to be performed the same day, there are a few cases where the spouses have their civil and religious marriage in different days. In Reunion 12 I see the possibility of entering a single marriage, but not two. I have tried to add the two events, but I haven't figured out this.

    I also have a rare marriage case: I have two spouses that married, and then they divorced, and then they remarried. I don't see a way to record this in Reunion software. Any tips that can help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mario

    You can create a new Family Event and call it something distinct - eg if you use the Reunion Marriage field for the religious marriage, create a new custom event called Civil Marriage. You do that in this screen here

    Then you can implement it from here which is reached by clicking the "Marriage" button between the two people
