You can’t claim an exemption for your spouse as your dependent, but you can claim a personal exemption. To claim a personal exemption for your spouse, you must meet a host of requirements. For example, you must have been married on the last day of the tax year.
For more details concerning personal and or spousal exemptions, you can take this online application from IRS.gov.
