Why does it only ask one spouse if they are elligible for the spousal amount?

Had to "fix" an error for spousal amount which changed from amount from green to red significantly.  How can I change this back? My spouse's amount is "0". Turbo tax is not asking if I can claim the spousal amount, only asking my husband.

If the amount is in red, that means the amount calculated by TurboTax has been overriden by the user. You can click once on the amount in red and press F2. A new window will open, asking if you want to Cancel this field's override. Click on Yes and the amount should be back to green color.
