If one person has had several marriages, but they were not entered in chronological order, can the order be changed?

I haven't tried this, so I'm going to add it as a comment, and not an answer. The first thing I would try would be to:

1) Add a fake person to my tree.
2) Make everyone who is a partner to the person for whom I want the ordering to be correct also a partner to this new fake person.
3) Remove all of the partners from the person I want to order correctly.
4) Re-add them as partners to that person in the correct order.
5) Remove them as partners from the fake person.
6) Remove the fake person.

If that works, come back here and tell us.
I haven’t tested this myself, but I think that deleting a person would delete all their marriages (but not the people they were married to). Thus, step 5 is obsolete.
