No, donations are linked to only one account. However, you can change a setting so that your spouse can see your donations and vice versa.

More details can be found in questions 7 and 8 in the online donations FAQ.

More exactly, a donation can only be connected with only one member. There is no way to designate a donation to be "as a couple". But there are ways to see the other's donation and to have both names listed on a printout.

Is there a way to add your spouses record number to an existing account.

If your spouse already has an LDS Account and her MRN is not attached, then she can add it by going to https://ldsaccount.lds.org, clicking on the Membership tab and entering the number there.

If you mean, can you add her number to your account as a second MRN, then no. Each LDS Account can only be associated with one MRN.

No. But your spouse can give you permissions to see their donations. In order for this to work, you both must have an LDS Account that has a MRN recorded. And the church must show the two of you married to each other.

The actual setting can be found in lds.org\donations, under settings. However, on printed reports, they will appear on a separate page rather than merged.
