How to delete unnamed spouse in FTM 2011

I use FTM 2011 and sync it with my tree on Ancestry.com.

On the Ancestry.com tree, my wife is shown with one spouse -- me -- which is correct. Neither of us has been married before.

However, on my computer, my wife is show with 2 spouses -- I an one. The other shows as [No spouse entered].

When I open FTM on my computer in family view, there is a number 2 beside her name, indicating 2 spouses. When I click on the icon beside the number 2, the drop-down box shows my name with an asterisk as the preferred spouse and [No spouse entered] as the second spouse.

If I click on [No spouse entered] the family view shows a box where her second spouse should be that asks me to enter a name.

I tried entering a name and giving her a second spouse. I thought if I entered a name for [No spouse entered] I coujld then delete that name. But, if I enter a name and give her a second spouse, she then shows as having THREE spouses: I, the phony name I entered, and [No spouse entered].

How do I get rid of this stealth second spouse?
