Talk:Head of household
When is HoH not the father?
Is there any more specific direction as to under what circumstances the head of household would be someone other than the father? In the main page it says, "In MLS, the head of household is usually the husband or father, whether he is a member of the Church or not."
So in the case of the wife being the only member, in every case should the husband still be listed as the head of household? -- Mbrinson 19:51, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
- If the husband and wife are married and they live at the same address, the husband should be listed as the head of household in MLS, even though he may be a nonmember. -- Smithgw 13:19, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Head of Household
I was wondering if there was any guidance regarding those who turn 18, even though they are considered adults, they should still remain under their parents until they get married, right? Another example would be if, a daughter had a child, a single mother, and still lives with her parents? I would think that the only time an 18 year old becomes a head of household is when he/she is assigned to a Singles Ward/Branch.
- The head of a household should be the member to whom all the other household members are tied in the records. In MLS, the head of household is usually the husband or father, whether he is a member of the Church or not. In certain cases, the head of household may also be another member parent, a single member, or a member child whose parents are not members. (See the MLS Software Manual Appendix A.) Generally, it is left up to the local priesthood leaders and the family to decide about young people as they turn 18.Petersenga 21:20, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
