Better descriptions, and management of relationships

It will be great if BuddyPress can also have more detailed descriptions and management of relationships for such as son, daughter, husband, wife, friend, brother-in-law, etc etc.

I am wondering if it can be more like facebook.

In addition, it can be also helpful if there is an optional blank field where memebers can fill out the "relationship" name themeselves. This will be handy especially in situations where the site is used by people who are not native speakers of English language. They can then name or describe the relationship in their own language.

Currently, there is not much you can do to define or name your relationships in BuddyPress.

Please add more details/functionality to the relationships management in BuddyPress.

Thank you.

Curious if we have any filters in place that would handle custom values like this.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
