Is there a way to show partners with two people on the family tree are siblings?

I'm trying to make one family tree for a whole bunch of people, to save space. Turns out there are two siblings who are partners with people on the tree and I don't know what to do. Should I just put each of these siblings' family tree twice?

hey man whats up all you gotta do is go to one of the partners, click "add partner/ex", then choose "partner with another person already on tree", then a dropdown menu will appear and you just have to scroll through that for the right partner then set them as either a current partner or as an ex

I'm not try to make them partners, I'm trying to show them as siblings. For example, two pairs of siblings marry into each pair. I want to show the family tree of all four people. But I don't want to do the same thing twice with each two sibling.

If I understand right, you've got for example.. John and James are brothers. Anna and Sally are sisters, in a different family. John and Anna marry, and then Sally and James marry. If this is the case, I would take whatever family you're starting from, say the guys..

You start with John, and add his brother James. Then, you add John's wife, Anna. Then, clicking on her name, you add her sister, Sally. The click the sister's name and click 'add partner with person on the tree', and find James' name. It might give you some weird duplicate names but it should work.
