Create a filter for the Family Group Sheet Report as follows:

# of children > is greater than 0 OR
( Sex = Equals M AND
Father* ID # is 0 AND
Mother* ID # is 0 ) OR
( Sex = Equals F AND
Father* ID # is 0 AND
Mother* ID # is 0 AND
# of marriage tags = Equals 0 ) END

This should get everyone that you want including the females without
spouses or parents. Good luck with you reports.
