As this is a marriage forum, which seems to cater to the traditional heterosexual marriage, I think it would be tremendously helpful to know off the bat if we were reading a husband's or a wife's post. Usually I end up scanning the post to see if "my husband" or "my wife" is mentioned, or if they refer to their SO with pronouns, that can help. I realize that I can view the user's profile, but that seems unnecessary just to determine a binary option like gender.
I haven't managed a forum in a long time, but I had a phpbb back in the day with an add-on that added ♀/♂ icons under everyone's avatar.
Surely this has been suggested before?
