Marriage records and 'unknown spouses'

Classification: Query
I am doing something wrong and I'm not sure what, I have entered information under add a fact for add a spouse, so the spouse is listed as a family member. Then later have found the correct marriage record and saved it to the correct person. When I create a descendancy report on Family Tree maker I get this person married the correct person, and then it also says they married an unknown person on the date shown on the marriage record. This is probably not clear and sorry about that. If you look at my Ross family tree, and find HARRY RAVENSCROFT RICHARDS, he married CHARLOTTE BEATRICE HOWELL.
The descendancy report, says

He married CHARLOTTE BEATRICE HOWELL. She was born on
21 May 1878 in Stourbridge, Worcestershire, England. She died in Dec 1969 in Welton, Lincolnshire, England. He married an unknown spouse in Jul 1900 in Worcestershire.
How do I fix this, should I do something different when entering the information? Help!
