How do I post multiple marriages to the same spouse.
He married then divorced the same two women twice proven by the marriage licenses.

@CynthiaFassett1, Family Tree will not let you create the same relationship twice, so the best you can do is to enter all of the relationship events for each spouse (using the pencil-stub icon in the couple's box, to the right of "No Marriage Events" in the mod's screenshot). Unfortunately, only the first of these events will show in the couple's box, so you may want to (also) enter them in the Other Information section as custom events.2
That's what I finally did. Thank you for the reinforcement.0
Did you see my reply, above? The same couple can have multiple marriage events. And, these events are all recorded in the pop-out box that appears when you click the Edit icon next to the marriage information in the couple box in the Family Members section.
Following is a link to the knowledge article that explains how to add or change marriage information in Family Tree:
Notice that there are 5 types of marriage events when you click on Add Event in Relationship Events. The default that appears at the top of the list is Marriage, but if you click on the down arrow to the right you will see the other choices.
This is an interesting situation to deal with. In Family Tree, "Marriage events" are stored with the couple relationship. (These events detail the creation or ending of a couple's relationship, whether or not the couple actually married.)
A couple can have more than one marriage event, obviously, such as both a marriage and a divorce. I just did a test in beta.familysearch.org and entered the names of a fictitious couple and entered two marriages for them and two divorces. The earliest marriage date is the one that displays in the couple box. Please note, however, that the amount of marriage information visible on Family Tree may vary according to the different tree views.
When a person has more than one spouse, the spouses are listed in chronological order by marriage event.
Here is the knowledge article for your reference:1
Here is how to add a spouse to a person. Go to the Person Page and scroll to the bottom. There, you can click on Add Spouse by the small + sign.
The above link also has instructions if you are using a mobile device.
I guess I wasn't clear enough with my question, I know how to add spouses. I have a man who married Elizabeth in 1903. Between 1910 and 1914 they divorced. He married Cassie in 1914. They evidently divorced before 1917 because they married again in 1917. Again they evidently divorced because in 1929 he again married the original Elizabeth. All the marriage licenses show the correct number of divorces and marriages. My confusion was how to enter the second marriages for each couple. After pondering on it I assume there must be a way to note the divorces which will hopefully solve the problem. I haven't been online yet to check it out. Thank you for taking the time to respond to my question and I apologize for my poor wording of it.0
Hope the article suggested above fully answered your question.
This issue often generates questions and has been addressed before here in the Community. Just a tip to save you some time......before posting a question, it may be helpful to you to check if this topic has been addressed previously - You can add keywords (in this case 'second spouse' or 'multiple spouses' ) to the search bar, and other similarly themed questions will appear and may provide you with a quicker answer.
Hope this helps.0
Para agregar cónyuges: debe "agregar cónyuge" entonces se creará otro cuadro famiiar en donde usted puede agregarlos hijos de ambos y su respectiva ascendencia del cónyuge agregado, tal vez se agregue automáticamente si el cónyuge añadido ya hizo su genealogía, sino deberá ir añadiendo sus padres, abuelos, etc. Espero haberla podido ayudar; en caso de tener línea descendente, puede seguir agregando los datos en sus respectivos rangos.0
