When an Unmerged Match is NOT a temporary state

+9 votes
In reviewing my pending merges, I came across this Unmerged Match (that I set), and realized it's an example of when an Unmerged Match is not temporary, exactly.  This is an example where until there is solid proof to identify the one Moses with the other, we are keeping them separate. They shouldn't be rejected matches, because the THEORY is that they are one and the same.

Perhaps he married both of them, spiritually.  And a few more as well.

That is my theory. But some descendants of Moses (especially one) refuse to believe they were one and the same man, that the "Elder Hix" of the spiritual wife-ism controversy must have been someone else entirely--not a Moses.

My evidence is circumstantial-- a lot of circumstances that I believe add up, but circumstantial nonetheless.

But the point of my posting this message was to point out that there are times when Unmerged Match is not quite as temporary as some would like to believe.
