Connecting a spouse under under "Relationship Events" and "Facts & Events" and "Facts & Events"

Classification: Query
I was hoping someone might be able to help me with a question regarding how spouses are connected under "Relationship Events" and "Facts & Events". When accepting hints regarding marriages, ancestry.com sometimes attaches the spouse, and sometimes it does not.

Here is an example of a individual whose spouse was not connected. This is the info shown under under "Relationship Events" in the edit screen under the persons name:

as you can see it lists the spouse as unknown.

Looking at the same info under the "Facts & Sources" tab does not show the spouse; however, it show the source citations:

Here are two examples of the marriage info for two different people, one where the spouses are connected, and one where they are not:

Can anyone tell me how to connect an unattached spouse? If I add a new marriage event, I can't attach the existing sources to the new event?!? I'm stumped. Thanks for any help.

P.S. I've attached all of the example photos to the post as well as links within the message.
