Purpose of the mod

The Family data heading in getperson.php is replaced by Husband or Wife depending on the spouse's sex.
When the same sex it displays Partner.


This mod was developed by Erik Hoppe who is NOT maintaining or developing this mod.
See Mod Support in the data box top right.
(See all my mods at my Wiki page)


TNG version: 10.1.3
  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of all affected files (see the list below)
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager (is already included in TNG)


  1. Click on the download link, shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page.
  2. Un-zip the file and you will find the .cfg file there (if there's also a folder there: That's a Mac habit - don't bother).
  3. Move/copy/FTP the .cfg file to the mods folder of your TNG system.
  4. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.

In the event of a problem


This mod conflicts with v11.0.0.0 of the Family Edit Links Mod. If you want to use both mods, you need to install the Family Edit Links Mod first. After installing the Show Husband or Wife mod, the Family Edit Links Mod will show a Bad Target because of the conflict. Do not attempt to Clean Up.

Conflict is resolved by v11.0.0.1 of the Family Edit Links Mod.

Custom Text Additions

The config file includes the English language custom text.
There are Dutch, French, German, Norwegian and Swedish translations if they are present in your TNG system.
For other languages you can modify the config file to add the custom text or manually add to whatever language you like.

(English custom text for reference)

$text['husband'] = "Husband";
$text['wife'] = "Wife";
$text['xerxxPartner'] = "Partner";
