Glitch in Generations Display?

Glitch in Generations Display?

I was adding additional info in FTM three generations back on my maternal branch. Everything looked fine when I highlighted the male side of the third generation branch.
I realized I needed to add info to his wife. I clicked on his wife and her branch changed to her husband's branch! His father was displayed as both his father and his wife's father!
When I clicked back on him...his wife's branch was redrawn correctly.
I have checked for duplicate names etc...but nothing was shown as duplicate.

Any idea why FTM would switch the branches as I clicked back and forth?

I am assuming you are using a newer version of FTM.

Under the Person tab for the wife, the one between View and Tools, select Attach/Detach and Detach Selected Person. This will bring up a list of all the families she is attached to. She should be attached to her husband and to her parents. I suspect you will also find she is attached to her husband’s parents. If so, detach her from this family.
