Indicate a divorce
How do I represent a divorce?
I want to indicate that two people are divorced, yet GRAMPS does not have a Relationship type of Divorced. How do I represent this?
GRAMPS does not consider Divorced to be a relationship type. Instead, it is an event that terminates the relationship. If two people are divorced, it does not change the fact that they had a relationship type of Married. Divorce, like Death, is one way in which a marriage is terminated. Just as the death of a spouse does not change the fact that two people were married, a divorce does not change the fact that two people were married.
So to represent a marriage that ended in divorce:
- Create a family
- Add both spouses
- Set the relationship to Married
- Add an Event of type Divorce
