Removing an incorrect marriage

I can't believe it was so easy to remove a record before changes to website. Unless I'm missing something, why is there no delete on page to remove any more. Please can someone tell me.

Do you mean a wrong spouse?

As long as there are no children attached, click on their box on the tree. Along the bottom of their box are 3 small buttons Add, Edit, Delete. Click delete

If you mean the marriage event, you need to open the slide profile box by using the << symbol at the top right of the tree page, and just over write or erase the details.

If you’ve attached the incorrect record, click where is says ‘Records’ on the person’s details as above
Then click on the incorrect record, which will open on another window.
Go to that window and select ‘Remove from Keepsafe’

Actually, it is supposed to open in another window, and did at the first attempt, but now the other window has loaded my tree again. There might be Server problems.
