In most cases deletion is discouraged. Take a look at the Deletion FAQ for more details:

I also don't like deletions but I skipped a generation in my maternal tree. Deletion permitted me to add the missing generatin. I then.was able to re-install the deleted person. I then reviewed those portions of my tree to insure that I had a valid tree.
Hi Jack.

Deletion shouldn't be done in a case like this. Really, it should only be done when very sensitive information has been revealed and must be cleared out of the database for privacy reasons.

Relationships can be edited on WikiTree. I'll add a question to the FAQ on this.
