No points when setting up trip for wife

Beware everyone,


Just found out that in order to earn any Marriott Rewards points, that it can only be for me personally, checking in and paying for the stay personally.  I set up a stay at the San Francisco Marriott for my wife using the on-line reservation system.  When the bill was emailed to me, I found that they had removed my Marriott Rewards account number.  Upon making a missing stay request, I was told that no family or friends stays earn points.  So presumably, there is only value in setting up a rewards stay for her.  If I'm paying, then there's no incentive at all to stay at a Marriott.  This is news to me.
