GRAMPS views a family as a relationship between two people. This relationship could be ''Married'', ''Unmarried'',
Partners are added using the Edit Family form. You can bring up this form from two different views - the Relationship View and the Family View.

Click on the {{man button|Add Partner}} button (in some earlier releases of GRAMPS, this button was labeled as '''Add Relationship'''). This will bring up the Edit Family form with ''John Smith'' listed as the Father in the family. Had the active person been a female, the person would have been listed as the Mother in the family. The Edit Family form can be seen below.

=== Alternate Method ===
You can also add a partner to a person from the Family View. Select the Family View, and click on the {{man button|Add}} button in the toolbar. This will bring up the Edit Family form with no people selected. In this case you must add both the father (''John Smith'') and the partner.
