#REDIRECT [[Relationships]]
With all relationships you can specify a begin and an end date. These dates state from when to when the information that the realtionship gives is true. E.g. if you say that [http://musicbrainz.org/artist/8b99cc6f-93d5-4ccd-93d6-6c8d645997b4.html Sonja Kraushofer] is/was a member of [http://musicbrainz.org/artist/024c3b90-9d09-4c67-902f-fdf49649e4f8.html L'âme Immortelle], then you might want to state from when she joined and when she left. (If someone has a better example, please replace this --[[User:DonRedman|DonRedman]]) 
Specifying dates is completely optional, and leaving the end date blank indicates that a relationship is still active today.
<ul><li style="list-style-type:none">Technically speaking this is not an [[Advanced Relationship Attribute|AdvancedRelationshipAttribute]], because it cannot be enabled/disabled for specific [[Advanced Relationship Type|AdvancedRelationshipType]]s. However, I think it is ok to treat it as such in the docs (an maybe it should even become one on the long run).
===Used with Types===
This attribute can be applied all [[Advanced Relationship Type|AdvancedRelationshipType]]s. It might, however, not make sense with all types. In this case just leave it blank.
The use of this attribute is not really clrea yet. We still need some proper [[Style Guideline|StyleGuideline]]s for this attribute. See for example the discussion on [[Founding Member Dates Question|FoundingMemberDatesQuestion]].
