I agree to Gereld, please file a feature request on our bug tracker.
Showing divorce/annulment alongside marriage looks like a good idea. Note that many things in genealogy are geared towards data 100 years ago, and divorce was not really common then or even possible.

Sounds like you might want to file a feature request at
bugs.gramps-project.org.   Other sorts of family events are not
displayed in relationship view either, such as engagement, annulment,
civil vs. religious marriage, marriage banns, etc.
