Switching the Parents

Sometimes you discover that the mother of a family is displayed as the father and and vice versa. This will happen when you add a husband for a woman. Both the woman ánd the husband didn't have their gender set however, so Genbox will then put her in the ‘husband’ position and him in the ‘wife’ position of the relationship.
You've corrected the gender of both individuals afterwards but that will not change these positions. This only becomes obvious though when you link children to the family. You will find mother in the father-box and father in the mother-box.

No matter what you do, it will be very difficult to persuade them to change positions. Hopefully Bill will design a "reverse parents" feature someday but untill then, you will have to do the following.

If you want to see this in action, I have tried to capture this tutorial in flash. It starts with creating some ‘gender-insecure’ parents.
