Stephen: Please post your last full data submission here on this message board. You can copy it out of the receipt you would have received from IMDb by e-mail immediately after sending it in. Some of the regulars on the board may review it and, if they can, they may provide suggestions as to how to improve the submission to get that marriage data removed from the database. (Also, please include the submission reference number -- it's an 18-digit number that will look something like 170123-123456-789000.)

Hi Stephen -

If I understand correctly, you are trying to delete the spouse details listed here, is that correct?

Stephen: First of all, the IMDb marital status section is backlogged to September 14. If you first submitted this deletion on or after September 14, I recommend waiting until the backlog has been cleared out as indicated at https://contribute.imdb.com/times on the Bio: Spouse line under "Oldest Item".

If you have been waiting for this correction to be made since at least September 13, I would recommend re-submitting the deletion but with a more definitive explanation. The first sentence should say, "I am Stephen Samson (I), and I have never been married to Carrie Anderson." That will make it clear to the IMDb editors, at least, that you are talking about your own marital status.

The second sentence should indicate your relationship, if any, with Carrie Anderson, of which the following are possible explanations (these are examples; please use your own explanation if none of these fit):
  • "I don't even know Carrie Anderson."
  • "Carrie Anderson is my former girlfriend, but we were never married."
  • "Carrie Anderson is my girlfriend, but we are not married."
  • "Carrie Anderson is an acquaintance of mine, but we have never been married."
Michelle, the IMDb official rep, may have additional comments on this, so if she has any advice to add in this thread, please follow what she says.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi Stephen -

I was able to see that your initial Marriage Details deletion requests were rejected because our staff have reasons to believe that the information on the site is accurate.  If you dispute this, you are welcome to submit the deletion request again, including a detailed explanation as Gromit82 instructed, however, note that if the data remains on the site, this will mean that our staff have verified the information and it cannot be removed.

Hi Michelle

Thanks for looking into this.

I dont understand, there is no info anywhere that say i was married. I have over the years put more information on the requests to delete it, just like Gromit has put an example of. Ive just got fed up with it and put that shortened version.  Its says we were married in 2000 that would mean we got married at 16/17 dont think thats even legal in the uk, have the staff noticed this? 

I will try again

Thank you for trying :)

Put simply: IMDB is worhtless when it comes to these issues. I've had the same issues for year and IMDB refuses to do anything about it.

I just got an incorrect marriage detail removed. So your claim is false.

Lol. It said you were married to Audrey Hepburn. Of course they removed it
