TMGU will not create a Name-Marr tag if the person already has an existing
Name Tag with the surname of the spouse. So, if a woman named Johnston
marries a man named Johnston, TMGU doesn't add a Name-Marr tag.
The primary purpose of the TMGU "Add Married Names" feature is to add names
that make it easy to find women by their married names in the picklist.
Having two names that will sort to the same place in the picklist isn't
useful. A Name-Marr tag with the same surname as another name tag may be
useful for other purposes, but TMGU doesn't address that use.
