Married couple ministers can be set up in either Elders Quorum or in Relief Society. The only restriction is the first member of the companionship must be a member of the organization setting up the companionship. For example: when the EQ is setting up the companionship then the first companion selected must be a member of the Elders Quorum before the sister (spouse of the brother) can be added to the companionship.

I just attempted to add a sister to a second companionship and was unable to do so, I get the message
This Household has already been assigned to <companionship>. Saving this assignment will reassign them to this companionship.

I stand corrected as noted above. When I tested this, I did not attempt to "save" the change (as I did not want to save the change). The system allows you to assign someone to another companionship but does not allow you to save that assignment without it releasing them from the other assignment.

Out of curiosity, do priesthood office restrictions apply? – for example, normally a deacon can't be given a ministering assignment in the system. If you start a new companionship with the sister, then attempt to add her husband, if the husband has the office of deacon (or no priesthood office), will it let you add him to the companionship?

That would be a really unusual situation. Typically, adult males with any activity level whatsoever would be at least a priest. That includes new converts.

I doubt the system would let you add a husband that is not at least a teacher.
