I've just noticed that the spouses do not show up on the public profile. Is this normal or did I somehow do this?

thank you

Thank you but I'm the manager of the profiles. I'm missing spouses on the public view on a few people. I see how that vague, incorrect question would lead to the answer you gave. Thank you. It was a good answer.

Have a great day

But YOU see on public view what everyone else sees on public view.  That's why it's public view.

When I click to my own profile's public view, I don't see all the information I know is there.  That's under the private view tab.

Thank you. I understand the concept of public view. I want people to see the marriages especially between my grandparents and up.  I figured it out. My Father was putting everyone on private so only minimal information could be seen. Thank you both for the answers
None of my business, of course, but maybe you should discuss the privacy setting with your father before changing them, especially on living people.
Ahh, yes, the differing privacy options.  My tablet was showing the colours incorrectly (I think it's dying) and I thought yours was set to the "Private with public family tree option", whereas a switch to the laptop says it's the next one up or down .. .. and now you have it on green.  You're just trying to fry my brain, right?
Good advice, Lucy, but privacy settings of living people are not up to profile managers anymore - they are automatically unlisted now, unless the profile is for a WikiTree member.

EDITED TO ADD:  I just checked the profile after writing the above and I see the marriage!

I appreciate your concern for my Dad. After I wrote that I considered it since my Dad isn't the sort to change things without asking me since it's my project. Also, I don't think he would know how. He's more of an observer when it comes to family and computers. I discovered the setting is automatic for people of those birth years. I have to change it when I add them. But thank you. I know he'd appreciate this too.

Check the place where you edited the marriage date and location.  You may have accidentally checked the box which says 'do not diplay'
