Civil and religious marriage

Pier Luigi Cinquantini
Hi to everybody.
I was asking me why, there is not an event to differentiate a civil marriage (by the mayor) from the religious.
In Italy not always they have the same date, either someone married only in the church or only at the town hall, or they can marry religiously some years after.
E.g. In the beginning of the past century, in Italy, a lot of people used to marry at the church and only next to their death they had a civil marriage to regolarize their children, otherwise without rights (bastards).

In GEDCOM, the EVENT_DESCRIPTOR following the TYPE tag is used to provide these further details. "A descriptor that should be used whenever the EVEN tag is used to define the event being cited. For example, if the event was a purchase of a residence, the EVEN tag would be followed by a subordinate TYPE tag with the value "Purchased Residence." Using this descriptor with any of the other defined event tags basically classifies the basic definition of the associated tag but does not change its basic process. The form of using the TYPE tag with defined event tags has not been used by very many products. The MARR tag could be subordinated with a TYPE tag and EVENT_DESCRIPTOR value of Common Law. Other possible descriptor values might include "Childbirth%unmarried," "Common Law," or "Tribal Custom," for example. The event descriptor should use the same word or phrase and in the same language, when possible, as was used by the recorder of the event. Systems that display data from the GEDCOM form should be able to display the descriptor value in their screen or printed output."

In Gramps, see:

"The Relationship Information section fields have the basic description of the relationship. The ID field displays the ID number which labels this relationship in the database, leave this field empty to have Gramps generate a unique ID number. You can choose from the drop-down Type: list the available types of family relationships such as Civil Union, Married, Unknown(default), Unmarried, etc.) "
