Is there a glitch with adding spouse or is it me?

Trying to add a spouse for Harris-30883. The input page seems to be completed correctly but when I click on the Add spouse box it just reopens the same completed page.with nothing flagged to indicate something is deficient but the tab at the top says Edit conflict. It's happened a few times to me when adding a wife and the last time yesterday I worked round it by adding her as a standalone profile then linking her to her husband using her profile number. Other times it's eventually added when I repeatedly hit the add spouse button.  Frustrated. David

Probably you (or someone else) edited the existing profile before saving the new spouse. It doesn't like you to change anything before saving.

Thanks Gillian. I may have gone into the original profile to copy details for the new profile being added.. Tried it again using the bare minimum detail and it worked. I'll now go back in to modify her profile
Another reason is it may have timed out, if you had it open a long time.
