I have more than one instance of a space being added for another person when in fact there isn't one.  For instance I have a person with 2 spouses but showing as 3 and with no details for the third.  How do I delete this third person?  Any ideas welcome.

Have you tired to run File>Database Tools from  top to bottom after restarting RM?

Are the RINs the same?

Can you make the blank person the active spouse and unlink using Edit>Unlink>from spouse?

You may have a child linked to the couple comprising the 1 known parent with an unknown spouse. If you have proof of full parentage, you should relink the child to the correct parents first, unlink from the incorrect parents, and then unlink the unknown spouse from the known spouse.

Thanks Bob.  This worked and I have got rid of the irritating husband!

Hope my wife doesn't figure this out.
