If you're asking about a second marriage for a profile.  In the edit screen on the right, under spouse, there is a link [add/remove spouse].  Click that and you can add another spouse.  Good luck!

It's my guess that you want to add a marriage to a profile that has already been created. I'm guessing this because you appear to have already included your (private) wife to your own profile. It's easy to add a wife and marriage to a profile that has an unlocked symbol...on the right-hand side of the profile, when opened to the edit mode, you'll see a column to add parents, children, spouses...just click on the spouses one and you can add name, date of marriage, place of marriage...everything you'd add if you're creating a new profile-which you are. Don't forget to add a source. Then if you "save" the profile it will be linked as wife or husband to the original person...make sure that each kid has the correct parents as sometimes when people remarry they produce half sisters or brothers. One final word of caution- save the new spouse before you return to filing in the original profile or you will have to enter the whole new profile from scratch. Confusing? It gets easier with time...and we all started from the same "new" place! Ask again if these directions aren't clear enough!
