At this time the  tree just doesn't allow siblings to marry or be in a relationship.  Some people think it should be added since it does happen even more back in th olden days.

Adding to jds1983's answer, the closest relationship the tree will allow is between first cousins. This is an issue which keeps popping up and will hopefully be resolved soon.

I don't know if you still need this answered, but I'll put this up anyway. I've found a way to get siblings to marry each after playing around for a while. It's a bit of a lengthy and confusing process, but I've tried to make it as concise as possible.

  1. Choose your person, let's say it's Anna
  2. Add parents for Anna, and let's call them Babs and Carl
  3. Add parents for Babs, and they're Dolores and Ed
  4. Add a new partner for Babs, and his name is Felix
  5. Add a new partner for Dolores, and he's George
  6. Change parents on Felix and set his father to George
  7. Add mother on Felix and select Dolores
  8. Delete George
  9. Add father on Felix and select Ed
  10. Delete Carl
  11. Add father on Anna and select Felix

I hope this made sense and I tried to make it as straightforward as possible. Again, I don't know if you still need this or not.

I think they just updated it, as I can now set siblings as partners.

Yes they did. They put a question up announcing it.
Who wanted this in the first place?
I think mostly for either a) fictional trees, like what I use it for, or b) in the olden days-depending on how far back you go-lots of siblings married and/or had children together. Lots of people, to my knowledge, use FamilyEcho for things like Game of Thrones.
That's pretty much it. You hope...
Brothers and sisters can't have children together !!!
They can, it's just illegal and highly dangerous. Because it can happen, did happen in history and does happen in fantasy, Family Echo have made it so they can.
they can have children together
No, but it happens.
