I hope I am not the only person who finds this objectionable.

In Reunion 10, when you designate someone as the Source, Reunion now names everyone who is related to that person, blood-related or not.

This is not necessarily bad on the face of it. You see that someone is designated as a spouse of your third cousin, for example.

What really surprised me is that when I was the Source and looked my grandmother's record, all of her other spouses who are not my grandfather are now labelled as my step grandfather.

For many reasons, I do not want these people labelled this way. Why would they not label them as Grandmother's spouse (and maybe tag on a number if you know the order - spouse #1, spouse #2, etc).

I think this gets very personal, and they need to come up with some alternatives.
