Removing Unknown Spouses

When I have a profle of a person that was never married it kind of bugs me that the public view of the profile shows spouses unknown as in http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Smith-26686

This implies that John Smith had spouses that we are unaware of instead of the fact is that he never married.   What is the easiest way to remove that bit of text from the public profile?

Hi Ed,

If you click on "spouse?" or another link to edit his marriages, see where it says "unmarried" or scroll to the bottom where it says "no spouse" and click it, this marks him as being unmarried. I just did this for John Smith. Now if you go to his profile the "spouse?" link isn't there.

I never thought I'd have to edit the marriage as a first step to eliminating the spouse.  That is great!  Thanks Chris
