Relationships can be setup between contact records. You can also create custom relationship types to connect to your contact records. These categories will be editable and viewable within Relationships for that contact record.

These fields can be queried upon for reporting purposes, perhaps to see which supporters or donors have a spouse that is also in the database.

To set up these Relationships, refer to How to configure and manage relationship types.

To add them to a Contact Record, refer to How to add a Relationship to a Contact Record.
