I can't figure this out. What I have is

Folder      Client      Name      PrimarySpouse
1002      1002      John Delight      1
1002      1002      Jane Delight      0
1024      1024      Peter Sheffen      1
2056      2056      Rock Smith      1
2056      2056      Rachel Smith      0
2056      4056      Child Smith      1

What I want is 3 columns with
Client      PrimarySpouseName      SecondSpouseName

To exclude chidren I use Where L.Client = L.Folder

This join doesn't work
SELECT TOP 100 L.client
FROM [NamAddr].[dbo].[tbClients] as L
Where L.Client = L.Folder and L.PrimarySpouse = 1
Join [NamAddr].[dbo].[tbClients] as R
On L.Client = R.Client
Where R.Client = R.Folder and R.PrimarySpouse = 0
Order by Client

How do I create a join with the wife on the same record as the husband?
