Ouch! I never imagined the growing threads over this topic issue.

Let me say now that the sample I used was just a simplified and dummy
sample of my real case, which has nothing about husband and wifes :-)

Now, the discussion has clarified me about the importance of the
definition schema, and believe me that I abandoned the theory of trying
to validate the most as possible with the schema rules. 

I agree that the schema should be simple, and the semantics validations
should be done post-schema validation. I mean, I'll try to use
schematron (for instance) to do the post semantics validations and keep
my schema definition stable and simple.
