I am going to assume this is an auto-correct error and you meant to say "... my wife doesn't have an SSN ...." 🙂

If your wife does not have an SSN you need to file for a ITIN for her and use that number. Here are the instructions for filing an ITIN: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1899396-how-do-i-get-an-individual-taxpayer-identification-number-...

Your filing status will be based on your marital status as of December 31, 2017.  If you were married at that time, then you will either file as Married Filing Jointly, or Married Filing Separately. 

Please see the following TurboTax FAQ for information on which filing status best fits your needs:

In some circumstances you can both file as Head of Household as long as you meet the requirements set forth by the IRS. Please see the following TurboTax FAQ on filing Head of Household while married.
