You can do that on your tree on here (and on all other programs that I have used).

To do it on here, Click on Edit then click on Add and select Partner.

I would say that all programmes including the tree on here allow for multiple marriages.

I know when I had my tree on here I was able to accomodate all the multilple marriages - the best way to do so is to add the children to the surviving partner etc.,

So I had 1 child & 1 mother - she married and their children were added to the father, when she died and he remarried the children from this marriage were added to the new bride (who also had 2 children from a previous relationship), And this system worked fine for me with this very complicated family of 1 husband 2 brides and 10 children!

If you want to create a tree that you would like to print out - there are many problems with the printing tree facility on here.

Am sure if you go to the suggestions board and read up on there you will find out the many ongoing problems.
