      Hi everyone,

      I feel like I’m doing something very silly, or overlooking a button somewhere, but I can’t seem to add a new marriage to my tree.

      Previously I’ve done this from the ‘Families’ tab of an individual’s page, and added a husband or wife, but I can’t find the link. I’ve tried on a couple of records, but no luck.

      I’ve also added ‘Marriage’ to the list of facts for a person, but when I try adding the marriage this way it opens the ‘Add new fact’ page then returns the following error:

      Fatal error: Call to undefined method WT_Person::getHusband() in /home/djw/ on line 1432

      Can someone please guide me in the right direction?

      Thanks in advance for your help.

      Hi Derek,

      As Nigel’s probably still asleep down under, let me come to your aid. In the drop-down list under Edit you now have ‘Add a wife’ for a male individual or ‘Add a husband’ for a female’. Took me ages too – because I didn’t read Nigel’s comprehensive notes on the subject at the time I last upgraded! Good to know I’m not the only one!

      It’s been moved to under the Edit menu icon. takes a few uses then you’ll wonder how you ever did it the “old” way. So much better, was a great change. Add a new spouse or add an existing person as spouse.

      From the same Edit icon, you can also link the person to an existing family.

      Two reasons for moving those links:

      1. it means they are available to you regardless of which tab you are viewing
      2. It means you can if you really want to remove the “Families” tab completely without losing those links

      I’ve also added ‘Marriage’ to the list of facts for a person, but when I try adding the marriage this way it opens the ‘Add new fact’ page then returns the following error:

      Two issues there.
      First, the error is corrected as part of the next release.
      Second. although you “can” add MARR to an individual, it is really a “FAMily fact so should be added on the families page (not the Families tab of the individual”. If you add a MARR event to an individual, that is literally all you are doing. It will not create a FAMIly record. It only signifies that the individual married, with when and where.However, I guess that is no longer relevant as you now know where the “Add wife” etc links are 🙂
