Parents don't need to be married
There's nothing on WikiTree that requires the father and mother of a person to be married. Marriages and parent-child relationships are recorded separately.
There can be some confusion about this because WikiTree enables you to create a marriage and a parent-child relationship at the same time. For example, if you are adding a mother and there is an existing father, the form will have a checkbox that says "X is the spouse of Y's father." Make sure this box is unchecked.
If a marriage has incorrectly been recorded, click to the edit page of one of the spouses. Look in the right column under Edit Family for the spouses section. Then click "[add/remove a spouse]".
