I am still new at this program. I have a problem with a duplicate spouse but it is not a duplicate person with different rec#'s. How do I get rid of the duplicate. Everytime I try to erase it, I end up having to reenter him/her. How can I avoid this in the future.

Try manual merge then fix the name as you want it. Delete the alternate name fact after the merge

Go to the family view.
Highlight the person who has the duplicate spouse.
Click on the "Spouses: 2" button near the top left.
In the pop-up the spouses are listed with Children(#) with a little arrow at the right, hovering on that arrow lists the children.
Choose the spouse connection you want to get rid of by double clicking on her(him).
That puts this family on the main screen, right click on either of the parents and choose Delete - Family.
If you keep the defaults and delete, this will unlink this instance of the family, leaving the other family intact.
