I doubt that this is a popular wish but it is extremely easy to fulfill and responds to a private discussion with vyger who likes to have a Marriage fact for every couple, even if the proof, date, place and details are not yet available. Moreover, RootsMagic itself suggests when you add a spouse to a person that you should add the Marriage fact, too. Of course, however diligent you might be in following that practice, oversights occur and, certainly, imports will likely be lacking them. So a tool to add the Marriage fact to all couples in a database that are lacking one could be useful.

Until RM is enhanced with such a tool, I offer this SQLite script to do the job: Event - Add Marriage to Couples Without.

Try this setting in RootsMagic Explorer to find them.

Marriage>Exists>is False
Number of spouses>greater than>0

Once you locate them you can add the marriage fact.
