Invisible spousal connection [closed]

0 votes

On I see only one marriage. Yet when I open the editing mode there are two spouses to be seen. How can this be?

Have you checked the marriages in edit mode?  (As in, edit the marriage itself, not just the profile.)

See if the "invisible" one is checked to NOT show.
Thanks Melanie! It solved the issue.
If there are two marriages and one is "not shown" then the one not shown was probably not a legal marriage by the laws of the land at that time ? That's the most likely reason.

Not necessarily, Susan.  My father was legally married three times.  Only two of those marriages are currently shown (because my Mother's ashes would coalesce and she would come back to haunt me if I had her showing as "wife of").

No, Susan - the most likely reason is that the box 'do not display' on the marriage screen was checked (by mistake).  This has been found to be the case, and therefore has been solved.

if you go into edit the marriages, someone has clicked the box for one of the marriages not to show.
