Facebook lets you list as much -- or as little -- personal information as you want on your profile page. For instance, you can add a list of all of your family members, including your wife. If your wife has a Facebook account, her name will also appear as a link in your profile and your name will appear as a link in hers, assuming she confirms your relationship request.

Step 1

Log in to Facebook and click your name to open your Timeline.

Step 2

Click the gray "Update Info" button to view a new page.

Step 3

Click "Edit" in the "Relationships and Family" area.

Step 4

Click the "Relationship Status" drop-down field and click "Married."

Step 5

Type your wife's name into the text field and click her name when it appears in the drop-down menu. If she does not have a Facebook profile then her name will not appear in the drop-down field.

Step 6

Click Save. If you selected your wife's name from the drop-down field in the previous step, a relationship confirmation request will be sent to her profile. When she confirms the relationship, your wife will appear on your profile.
