Hi Judy and welcome to WikiTree.

On the profile in question, click on the Edit tab. Page down until on the right side you see "Spouses:".  Under spouses you will see [add/remove spouse].  Click that. A new screen opens. Page down and you will see two large bars one which says Add Spouse and one which says Remove Spouse. Complete whichever task you need to accomplish to match your primary source documentation.

Before doing anything, be sure it really is the wrong spouse.  Many people have the same common name.  Before making a change such as detaching a spouse, it is imperative that you have good sources to prove your assertion.  Could it be a different person with the same name?  Could the individual have married more than once?  If you detach, add a == Research Notes == section to the biography giving the Wiki-ID for the person removed and why it was removed, together with a citation of the primary document with the correct information.  An internet family tree (which could be wrong) is by itself not a good source.
