I am sorry about your predicament. First I woukd recommend any discussions with them about the rent be in writing so that there is evidence. There is really nothing you can do to prevent a false claim by someone but they would have to prove it and that is difficult to do. Just do not do anything that makes their case for them. Generally one married couple would not be separately charged for rent so that issue is moot I believe.
