I agree this is that is the best way, review the person
click Spouses/Children combine duplicates, then sync them, the do the

which will show other duplicates of the first spouse. Works a lot better
than using groups sync because that way you get the marriage and sealed to
parents information that you won't get with sysncing groups. The people
you will see already have established connections, but if you search for
individuals you might come up with all kinds of people. A lot of times
there isn't enough information to determine if the people are the
same other than names. It's a bit slower to do it that way but the only
way to get the marriage/ sealing information.
I've not had any problems with it importing multiple marriage records. I
have found some duplicate people and a couple of marriages in my file from
when I imported gedcoms from a couple of cousins or they had duplicates in
their files. I've had to merge them as I've found them. I've not had much
luck with it finding people to merge, I've done better going down the name
list looking for duplicates but I have over 8800 people to look at.
