If you really want to remove the phantom spouse, you DETACH him or her (NOT delete).

This is done by selecting the "real person" at File > Person > Attach/Detach > Detach

However, be careful when doing that if the phantom spouse has children with the "real" person, the phantom spouse may just pop up again.

Be sure that couple has no children before you detach the phantom spouse. If the "real person" did have children with the phantom spouse, then you will need to give the phantom spouse a name. Some names you could use are "Wife", or "First Wife", Or "Last Wife", or whatever.
