{{Marriage}} takes up to three unnamed parameters – plus either, both or neither of the named parameters |()= and |reason= – to produce output such as the following:

Jane Doe (m. 18951905)
Fred Smith (m. 2010)
Jack Ripper (m. 1885; wid. 1888)
Frank Lee & Aynee Text (m. 2002–13)

The above were produced by:

{{marriage |[[John Doe|Jane Doe]] |1 January 1895 |December 31, 1905}}
{{marriage |Fred Smith |()=smaller |2010}}
{{marriage |Jack Ripper |1885 |July 27, 1888 |reason=w.}}
{{marriage|()=small |Frank Lee & Aynee Text |2002 |2013}}

Syntax and parameters

{{marriage(|()=) |[Text] |[start date] |[end date] (|reason=)}}

Parameter Description
() Set |()=small or |()=smaller to reduce the font-size used for the parenthesis. (See second and fourth examples above.)
Text Some text – usually a spouse's name – preceding the parenthesis carrying the marriage date/s, etc.
start date
end date
Only the year within each of these will be displayed. If either has more information (e.g. month, day), it is given via a {{tooltip}}. (See first and third examples above.)
reason Reason for marriage's end.
Set |reason="div", "div." or "divorced" (without quotemarks) to include "div." within the parenthesis;
or |reason="w", "w.", "wid", "wid." or "widowed" (without quotemarks) to include "wid." (see third example above);
or |reason=[item] to use some customised text/tooltip/etc. For example:
{{marriage |Miss Doe |January 1, 1882 |December 31, 1905 |reason={{tooltip|abd.|abducted}}}}
which produces: Miss Doe (m. 1882abd. 1905)
