How do I add a spouse to a person?: update relationship partner labels
Gramps views a family as a relationship between two people. This relationship could be ''Married'', ''Unmarried'',
''Civil Union'', or ''Unknown''. The two principal people are labeled as ''Father/partner1'' and ''Mother/partner2''. However, these can be used to handle childless couples, couples with children, or even same-sex partners. A person can have multiple partners, but each is listed in a different Family.
Partners are added using the Edit Family form. You can bring up this form from two different views - the Relationship View and the Family List View.
Your screen should look something like the screenshot.
Click on the {{man button|Add a new family with person as parent}} button(Highlight in yellow above). This will bring up the Edit Family form with ''John Smith'' listed as the Father /Partner1 in the family. Had the active person been a female, the person would have been listed as the Mother /partner2 in the family. The Edit Family form is shown in the screenshot.
Once the Edit Family form is displayed, you can add the partner by clicking one of the two buttons next to the Mother/partner2. The first button will allow you to select a person who is already in the Family tree, and the second button will allow you to add a new person who is not already in the Family tree.
== Alternate Method ==
You can also add a partner to a person from the Family List View. Select the Family List 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 /Partner1 (''John Smith'') and the partnerMother/partner2.
