I'm not sure I understand why you're giving them a separate marriage
license tag and why they're not in the same project -- maybe I've
misunderstood you. But if you're linking them together in the same
project, then keeping it really simple would be to use one Marriage
License tag for the two of them as is: [P] and [PO] obtained a marriage
license <[D]> <[L]> -- and you could add <[M]> to that ([P] and [PO]
obtained a marriage license <[D]> <[L]><. [M]>) and write whatever you
wish into the Memo about their ages and place of residence or anything
else you may wish: "Mary Hill and John Doe obtained a marriage license
27 April 2009 in San Francisco, California. Mary was 24 and living in
Berkeley, Alameda County, California, and John was 25 and living in
Sausalito, Marin County, California" Or you can rewrite the sentence
entirely. I tend to keep things pretty simple most of the time but there
are master tag sentence creators on this list who come up with some
pretty nifty sentences who I'm sure could give you some examples.
