MAKE A BACKUP, JUST IN CASE ... YOUR FINGERS HIT THE WRONG KEYS ONCE IN A WHILE!

Do you see the record number for the people?
If not, go to the Tools menu, choose "File Options" and in the Number to display after name, choose "Record number (RIN)"

Using Family View check the record numbers of the spouses.
if they are different, you have that person entered twice and can delete one of them.

If the record numbers are the same you can choose to look at the family you want to get rid of and right click on either of the spouses and choose delete then family, in the popup box be sure to just keep the default, "Unlink Family members" -- the other erases the people altogether which you do not want.
