Yes, typically you need to add the "fact" of marriage, as well as the spouse name, before trying to add a record to support the marriage information. Very few of the marriage databases will seek out a spouse by the name indicated on the marriage record, and fill in the date for you. For most, you have to have the "fact" already in your timeline and then most (but not all) will let you click that to add the exact date from the marriage record. You also can add the record cite manually, but that's a tedious process.
