Additional category for Marriage Event
In the couple relationship area, please add a category for DNA event. In my case, I have three NPE (non parental event) situations in my immediate family. For each couple listed, the DNA parents of the child were married to other people at the time of both the conception and birth of their DNA child. They never married one another, nor cohabitated. The FamilySearch program only offers the following options: Annulment, Common Law Marriage, Divorce, Lived Together, Marriage. None of those categories apply in this situation. The FamilySearch program prompts sealings for these couples, but they are each sealed to the spouse to whom they were married.
Being prompted to seal these couples is problematic, since there was no legal, or even societally accepted relationship. In addition, for some NPE situations, such a prompt can be traumatic, as DNA events can result from ****, an affair, or other distressing activity. With the advances in and popularity of DNA testing the discovery of such birth events is increasing. It would be helpful to have the additional option of "DNA Event" or some equivalent in the dropdown menu for marriage/relationship definitions. In my opinion, it would also be helpful to block this option from resulting in an automatic potential sealing.
