I've tried repeatedly to add a marriage date for a couple in my file, and it will NOT let me do so. This is very annoying, and it's flat out ticking me off! How do I add or edit a marriage date in this program?

Go to your Edit Person screen.


Click on +Add a fact


Start typing M-a-r-r- and select Marriage when you see it.  (Or just hit Enter once it's highlighted.)


Then you're given the option to choose a spouse, or add a new person.


Once you've done that you will find you have added a new Fact to your Person.  And you should be in the data entry screen for that new fact with the data fields Date, Place, Details, Note, Sources, Share, to complete.


It's a fact, like any other.  You either can't add or edit dates on any fact, or you can for the marriage facts as well.
