Parner instead of Spouse

29 October 2014 - 03:35 PM

I'm sure someone will put me straight on this pretty quickly !


I have family members who have a partner, not a spouse, and I don't know how to deal with this.  I have tried entering a new Fact type of Partner but it still seems to treat it as a spouse.  I now want to indicate, somehow, that this person, say Fred, is no longer the partner of Freda from a particular date forward.  Freda doesn't have a new partner, but I can't find a way of  stopping Fred still appearing as a spouse, so I thought I would just enter fact type Partner again and just enter No-one.  The trouble is RootsMagic seems to think of partner as a spouse, because that's the box that comes up when I select Partner, and Spouse shows on screen at the top of the person box.   I really would appreciate some help on this.
