Can a partners DNA mix into your DNA.

I have tested DNA with familytree and Ancestry and used them to up loaded them onto my heritage. They come up with slight differences. But near same matches on people who match. Only on one did it say a trace of Africa, Nigeria in fact. My wife is Nigerian. Can your partner DNA weave into you own. Even a tiny amount.

NO!
Your DNA is your identity - it is what you are born with, and inherited from your ancestors.
I'm not sure, but possibly the only way it could be changed if you have had a bone marrow transplant as a result of, eg a blood cancer.

Yes very easily.

If for instance a couple were engaged in one of the more exuberant forms of kissing just prior to the DNA test there is a good chance that salvia could have been exchanged and incorporated into a saliva DNA sample.

There are of course, other explanations and reasons why matches may be found in DNA samples from unrelated people.
