I entered an event for my Union with my partner. It does not show up on the Calendar list, while I can see many anniversaries. I also tried to call it "Marriage", but still, it does not show up. Can anybody tell me how I make it show up? and how do I make sure my relatives get notices of the anniversary?
you should NOT have to enter a NEW event for the Marriage/Union. As he is already listed as partner, the event should already be there! Check the time-line tab on your profile.
You should see the event for your union listed. If you click on it, you'll see options to edit it and add whatever details you like. If you enter the date on the event, your family will get anniversary notices.
David, I don't think I have ever used the Calendar view. But does the event created by GENI (i.e. not the one you added) for your Union have an EXACT date? That SHOULD be all that is required.
My wedding does NOT have a date, and the Calendar view suggests I add it, so it would seem that that is enough.
I think a Union is 'just" an event as if you were to put in an event like "Made Tacos for December 20, 2010". There won't be an anniversary announcement for it with hearts, balloons, champagne bottles and cookies...
Instead, make yourselves married and in the "description" mention that it was a union ceremony since same-gender marriage was not yet legal in your state. I think then, your relatives and friends will get your anniversary emails.
PS I didn't mean "a union is just an event" but your Union on your profile is "just an event" that you can create like any other event (got my first car, saw my first movie, took a trip to Europe, converted to [insert religion], etc).
So, rather than adding your Union as "event" and making your Partner a partner, add him in as a Husband. Then check your timeline for your "marriage" date and edit your description for your "Marriage" as a unity ceremony. Your family and friends will get updates every time your anniversary comes around.
