I have been reading the webtrees thread on different types of “marriages” and the lack of consensus! My head spins!
From my (technical) perspective, without highly complex and major changes to code the issue is actually simple:
If the tag = MARR we describe couples as husband and wife.
If the tag = _NMR we describe the couple as partners. </>
I’ve been using:
MARR husband/wife “that have walked down the aisle” (male/femaie or same gender) so “He married Jane Doe” is fine
_COML husband/wife that live together without the formality and I know for sure they consider themselves a couple (and have legal status under eyes of Canadian law) so “He married Jane Doe” is fine although there is the technical difference
_NMR never used it but just changed a marriage and saw the difference; will have to wrap my head around difference of using instead of _COML but the “He had a relationship with Jane Doe” > sounds a bit like they were fooling around (which many of my Royals did, but not my relatives; well, some did). That said, it suffices – again, refer back to the record for exact details within Notes
