Do not remove duplicate spouse, merge them.

I found another one today. Due to a merge of the husband's profile, he was left with duplicate wives. Instead of proposing a merge of the two wives' profiles, someone simply removed one as wife. Which left husband with two children, each with a different mother.

Please, WikiTreers, use the merge capability to eliminate duplicate profiles. Don't just sweep them under the rug or hide them.

Also, if there are conflicts / issues that need sorting out. Please leave the possible duplicate profiles with a post / message about the issue and that they are being sorted out.
