One way to do this is to add the name of the spouse as a column in the main Records Window.

You can find out more on the Knowledge Base Wiki:

The Surname Summary Query in the Query Store is also quite useful for this and you could add an addition selection to select only where the Spouses name matched the name you were searching for.

I also just did a quick query for this job called 'Name Search'

Which prompts for a Surname and First Name, it will then list everyone in the file with the entered first name included in thier given names and if they are male thier surname matches that given or for females where any of their husbands surnames matches the one entered.
