Tag source to marriage while using Source Linker

Cina Johnson said: I would LOVE to see the option to link sources to marriage facts in the Source Linker. Tags are tailored to the information found in the document, so it would make sense to include marriage facts (couple relationship) when linking a marriage source. It would certainly improve the documenting of marriages and make life a lot easier for the user.
Jeff Wiseman said: I agree completely, and this has been requested many times. Note that with tagging sources to couple relationships (as well as parent-child relationships), it would be slightly different from how it works on person-specific vitals. If you have an indexed marriage source (e.g. license or certificate), you would actually have 2 citations tagged to the couple relationship, one for the husband and one for the wife (correspondingly taken from the husband's source list and the wife's source list). Even though they both ultimately terminate at the same historic record, the citations that are tagged are to specific persons in the index file for the marriage source. So you would have 2 separate citations needed.
But having sources taggable to all related events in the same manner would be a humongous step forward in having an intuitive interface on this tool.0
