FTM 2011 and Upload to AMT

Using FMT 2011. I want to upload a certain portion of file to an AMT. It will be the descendants of John Black and Mary White. How do I get the spouses of the descendants to be included in the upload? Thank you. Cheryl

Edit: I just now realized that the spouses are automatically included, right?

I take it you are going to File > Export > Descendants to a new file and then upload that file to ancestry?

Yes, that file will contain spouses of the descendants. It won't have spouses of spouses, however. For example, if the second wife of John Doe had two previous husbands, they will not export. Step-children will not be included unless they were "forced" to be a child of a parent who was a descendant. (At either an "add a child" or "add a parent" or "attach a child" or "attach a parent" screen.) Some folks do force step-kids to show as children as step-parents, a practice that I don't agree with.
