Bit of an odd one and apologies if it has been covered before but, for Contacts such as Mum & Dad where their details are shared how come I can only put one birthday to show in my Calendar? I realise I could set up one Contact with just Mum's details and a separate one for Dad but this seems an unnecessary duplication (unless there's an easy way to replicate one and then change the name?).
Obviously anyone who has married friends or friends with children would like to have all that family's info in one place but still have the right birthdays showing in the Calendar automatically. Am I missing something glaringly obvious????
Any advice anyone?

Everyone I know who's married has a separate mobile number from their partner. So, they become 2 separate contacts for me.
I manually put in Birthdays and Anniversaries when I got my phone for calendar, but haven't addressed the contact issue, good question. Is there a way to relate one contact to another as husband/wife kids etc?
In my contacts app I discovered I'm able to go to "edit - add field - associated persons" at each contact.
