I think I single perons should be able to view their own pedigree without being reminded they are single. It is a diservice to them and degrading to see a pedigreechart 1/2 empty. They are being penalized for being single. I also think it is unecessary for divorced people to have to see their ex partner's pedigree still linked to their own. Sometimes people remarry and sometimes they do not. In either case it would be nice to not have to be reminded each time I log in, that I am divorced.

As someone who recently flunked out of Singles ward (left without marrying), I concur.
At a minimum, I see a tremendous amount of wasted space and clutter every time I log in. It is a heavy reminder, if only for just a moment. I can get over it, but for others it might be intolerable.
For the divorcees, I'd hide ex-spouses unless there were children from that marriage... and even then it should probably be individual preference.
Note that someone could also have a disastrous ex-son in law or a money grubbing step-mother they'd rather not remember.
Perhaps there could be a drop down option to the right of the children tab (below the couple box) that says "hide/show spouse", but only for living people. That would leave it to individual preference. If someone didn't want to be reminded of a relationship (or lack thereof), the system would be able to remember that for them.
