    Part II, Section A, #3 of the AFFIRMATIVE ASYLUM PROCEDURES MANUAL states that a Dependant (including a spouse) may apply for TPS by following the procedures listed. The spouse will be considered for TPS by immigration, and will make a decision there upon.

    As for ramifications, keep in mind that TPS is a refugee program. If the government considers that you now have a safer place to move to (your spouse's homeland), they may revoke your TPS status. I've never known anyone that this has happened to, but it is a definite possibility.

    You would do best to consult with an immigration attorney, as they can provide you with the most up to date information.

    Best of luck.
