Why do some people have an "unknown spouse"?

Applies to: All products


Answer: Some reports will indicate that a person has an "unknown spouse." This is caused by the fact that:

  • The person has a Marriage Group or Divorce Group tag in which his/her spouse is undefined.
  • The person has a child whose other parent is not defined.

In both of these circumstances, there is a "spouse" who is unknown to the program. Check all the Marriage/Divorce-type tags and make sure both principals are specified. Check all the children, and make sure they have both a father and a mother.
