    Changing the relationship of an individual in the database

    This may be difficult to explain.. . but I will try.
    I have an entry in my database of a man and a women who had a child together but they are not married. The way it is entered, the women is shown as his spouse. I would like to change that so that it does not show her as the spouse but maintains the relationship as parents of the child. I assume that there is a way to do that, but I have not been able to find it. Thank you.

    Try this...

    Go to their family view, where they are shown in the center and their child is under them in the Children area of the family view.

    Then, choose Edit -> Family -> Marriage and select "Unmarried" from the "Marriage" menu.

    Afterward, Unmarried will appear in the marriage button where the marriage date and place usually appear.

    I hope you find this information helpful

      Thank you.. That is a partial solution.
      That shows that the couple is "Unmarried" in the family view, but the woman is still tagged as "Spouse". Since she is not and has never been the spouse of the man, this is still incorrect.
      How can I change the term "Spouse" to something more appropriate. And if it is relevant to the solution, The male in this case is and has been married to another women..
      Thanks in advance for a quick response.

        This cannot be changed. It is set by Reunion.

        But, I will add a suggestion to our wish list to consider adjusting the term when the couple is unmarried. As with all items on our wish list, I cannot promise when or if it will be implemented. However, I can promise it will be considered by our engineers/programmers.

          That relationship can be added in Reunion, if you wish. Just add the woman as a "second spouse" to the man, by clicking the "plus" sign above the father's box and selecting "Add New Spouse". The father's child will only show up in the Family View with the (unmarried) mother of the child.
