Is it possible to construct an alternate sentence under the above conditions?

I know it can be done with roles, but was hoping there was a way to modify the standard marriage sentence, so the result would be the normal sentence, if date and/or place were known, but if not the sentence would be [P] had a relationship with [PO].

I am fixing up a donated database, where there are about 6000 instances of this. Changing to roles would be too time consuming.

I have tried several variations, but all without success.

My question is: Is it actually possible without roles?

Thanks,
Afina

Afina,

What would you like the output to be if there is no date or place? The default just says they were married, and mentions the parents of the spouse if known. What else would you want it to say? That determines what the Sentence Structure should be.
