Assy Qty - Faking Quantity

If this has been asked please forgive me - 

- I have a plumbing assembly

    We use both sides of a union and they appear in one assembly but have to be installed on two different "sub-assemblies".

Picture shows example of Union - 

I assembled one to the left hand nipple and one to the right hand.

-They are the same part number - configuration allows which end to show - Therefore 

The BOM shows my Union as 2 Quantity.


DETAIL                 DESCRIPTION              QTY

P-UNION              PLUMBING UNION         2


Is there a way to make the two a    1 without manually editing the quantity? 




If i created a union with three components - Treaded End / Coupler and Nut that wouldn't help in this scenario as the Threaded end might be assembled in a different assembly.


I hope you get the idea behind what I am wanting to do.
