Usage

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

Jane Doe (m. 18951905)
Fred Smith (m. 2010)
Jack Ripper (m. 1885–88)
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}}
{{marriage|()=small |Frank Lee & Aynee Text |2002 |2013}}

Syntax and parameters

{{marriage [| ()= ]| <text> | <start date> | <end date> [| end= ]}}

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; i.e., {{Abbr}}. (See first and third examples above.)
end Reason for marriage's end.

d, d., or died includes d. within the parentheses if the marriage ended on the death of the spouse.

div, div., or divorced includes div. within the parentheses.

Otherwise, |end=item includes customised text. For example:

{{marriage |Miss Doe |January 1, 1882 |December 31, 1905 |end=annulled}} which produces: Miss Doe (m. 1882; annulled 1905)
