Well, I agree with you.<G> But we both use the roles Groom and Bride.
Apparently there are people who prefer it this way because they don't use
those roles. My guess is you'll hear from them soon enough. :)

I'm not sure where the disagreement about it being an issue would be -it
makes adding spouses much more difficult. I ignored the message (because I
knew the sex was correct; that the appearance of the message box must be a
bug) and had entered about 20 spouses in a family line before I realized the
spouses weren't printing correctly in Journal reports because both roles
were assigned as Grooms. I had to go back and correct them all. This could
really create a train wreck for someone, especially someone new to TMG.

Is there an easier way to enter spouses now?
