Marriage Indexing: 2 or 3 images per marriage

I'm getting reports of records that contain only information on a bride or a groom but not both. An image or two later, the other half of the record is on another image but it too is incomplete. Please index each of these images as if it is the only information available. Complete as many of the fields as you have information for. When you get to the next image that contains other information about that same marriage, index it in the same way, marking any fields not filled in as blank (Ctrl+B). This will allow for the records to be found easily in the index, but there is no way for us or GSU to merge the two or three parts of a marriage record if they are on different images. Each image must stand alone.
