Marital status and filing status are, and always have been, single.  Prior years TT never generated spouse forms.

TurboTax generates the 8889-S as a worksheet, in case it is needed.

If, at the end of the tax return processing, there are no numbers on the 8889-S, then TurboTax won't send the 8889-S to the IRS anyway.
