My technique for dealing with this is to assign a semi-blank father only.
Assuming that they followed the usual naming conventions for my database, I
create a new person with no first name, last name that matches theirs.
Attach him as father to both children in order to make them siblings, with
no mother listed.
You *may* even be able to make the father-bio non-primary so it won't show
up in reports, but I haven't tried. Might be easier to just set surety below
your usual printing level.

Subject: [TMG] Brothers without parents
How do I show that two males are brothers when I do not have parents for
them? TMG tells me that without parents I can not show this relationship.
I have no information on the brothers family except the fact that they are
brothers. They married sisters in my family line. Do I need to assign them
"blank" parents? That is the only way I can come up with that allows this,
but now I have two unrelated "blank" persons in the database.
Thanks in advance,
