Only female common ancestors?

My shared ancestor hints now display both couples, with only a couple of exceptions, where they link to a woman and in those cases, it is because my tree and my matches tree have different spouses entered (and in both cases, the hint is wrong and the woman in my tree is not the same woman that is in the other tree). Until several weeks ago, most hints were matched only to the male.

You wrote: "I had thought that I would receive a lot of matches for my mother's side(since I am female and it would follow my maternal line) and have received far more for my father's side."

Unlike mt/y-dna, autosomal dna is not gender specific. You have autosomal dna, in equal parts, from both your parents and your results reflect that. What you get in matches will come from both sides, limited only by the database and who has been tested.
