Question Any problem with referring a spouse for referral bonus?

Perhaps the answer is obviously "yes," and that's why I can't find this discussed via a quick search here. But is there any problem with getting a referral bonus via referring a spouse for an Amex card (or other cards, such as Citi or Chase, for that matter)? And in turn, is there any problem with the spouse getting a sign-up/initial spend bonus through this process?

Thanks for any help with this.

"No problem whatsoever" is the answer to both of your questions.

as an additional point, i have even referred myself for a card and gotten the bonus both as a referrer and as the referred. they have to be different cards though, e.g. a plat to a gold or v.v.
