How to Mark a Couple as Separated or Divorced

To mark that a couple were separated or divorced, open the Property Dialog for either of them (see How to View an Individual's Record in the Property Dialog), and set the Status field for their marriage to Separated or Divorced. If they divorced, you can also add a divorce event for their marriage if you wish (see How to Record Details About a Marriage). Although 'Divorce' is a standard event, 'Separation' is not. However, you can add it as a custom family event if you wish (see How to Create a Custom Fact (Event or Attribute)).

If you wish, you can use a distinctive line style to display the marriage lines between divorced and separated couples, in diagrams and charts (e.g. they can be crossed-out). This is an option in the Lines tab of the Diagram Options dialog.
