Add ability to add marriage date when adding spouse
It would be nice to be able to add the marriage date when adding a new spouse so that we don't have to go to a different screen (and click on add event) to be able to add that info. It would save a lot of time.
If another line was added here where we could input the marriage event info, that would be helpful:
Instead of having to click on 'add marriage event' then click on 'add event'. If we are adding a spouse, there is a good chance that we have a marriage event to add as well. Thanks

I see this as a good idea in helping to find a duplicate for the spouse being added, but believe it best to add these facts separately after carefully evaluating the evidence for the marriage event details. For the same reason, I do not like the ability to add marriage details during the source linking process. There are often multiple sources within the FamilySearch database for a "marriage" of a couple. When examined carefully, one possibly does represent the event associated with the marriage ceremony, but other records (especially relating to licence issue and banns) are sometimes indexed under the "Marriage" heading, so I always take time in checking for multiple events and think it best not to make it too easy to add what might not transpire to be the correct marriage data after all.1
