It is appropriate to add a short section to your article about the person's personal/family life.

This section might include:

  • Basic information about spouse and children.
  • Faith affilations.
  • Other notable information.

Take particular care in writing this section. Only include information that is commonly and publicly available, and always use citations.

The name of the section in your article should be "Personal."
