How do you edit a relationship where the parents are not married (not  a spouse) but both are still shown as the parent of the child.

Go to your Help menu and put in Relationships.  There are several topics to look at.

You simply don't enter a marriage event. "Spouse" is a euphemism for "had sex with".

I change them to "partner" since I use a query to add married name to spouses.
