|Waaaaaaaaaaaay too many repeat clues. |
For example, don't tell us that Ella is not married to the doctor just to turn around and say that Emma is. Just say Emma is. By logical process (the name of the game), we know that means Ella can't be married to the doctor.

|This was a long and tedious puzzle. Read a clue, fill in one square on the grid. Repeated a dozen times. Then go to the grid and fill in the remaining empty squares until finished. In the end it was the the grid which solved the puzzle. There was little chance or need to do any logical thinking.|

|It actually was solvable without knowing that all the marriages were heterosexual, but I was hoping that the author would attempt to mess some people up by putting in a couple gay marriages.|

|"Thanks for providing the grid though." - I think you should thank the Braingle coders for that. |
Easy one, but very ... addling. I agree on the repeat clues. I eventually just skipped to the bottom to read the affirmative clues instead of catching the negatives.
And just as the above poster said some gay marriages would have been a good way to fool some. Before reading the hint I was almost ready to assume there were no homosexual relationships, just because it's so sadly lacking in these. And looky there, I was right! ha.

|I solved it without looking at the hint AND without assuming anything about gender... except the Ms. Jackson clue.|
Easy flow to the puzzle.

|I love this one but it was VERY repetitious!! I agree with the opinion that the Emma-Ella thing was plain annoying. Very good effort though! and nice idea!|
