Adding Additional Spouses
To add a person's second marriage, third marriage, etc., first go to the person's edit page (click an edit link from their profile page) and look in the right-hand column under "Edit Family." Scroll down to "Spouses" and click "[add/remove a spouse]".
Following this link enables you to create the spouse and establish the relationship.
Hiding Divorced Spouses
You can hide a previous marriage from the main profile page, e.g. if you don't want a divorced spouse to show as a living person's husband or wife.
After the marriage is created, click "[edit marriage]" on the edit page and check "Do Not Display".
Multiple Marriages to the Same Spouse
If the same two people marry, divorce, and then re-remarry, it can only be recorded as one marriage on WikiTree.
It's recommended that you explain the re-marriage details in the biography section of the profile.
