Thank you for your response. The short answer is that you should object and withhold all documents subject to the "spousal privilege" on any request that seeks communications between you and your spouse. The statute which supports the spousal privilege is:
2005 Arizona Revised Statutes - Revised Statutes §13-4062 Anti-marital fact privilege; other privileged communications

1. A husband for or against his wife without her consent, nor a wife for or against her husband without his consent, as to events occurring during the marriage, nor can either, during the marriage or afterwards, without consent of the other, be examined as to any communication made by one to the other during the marriage. These exceptions do not apply in a criminal action or proceeding for a crime committed by the husband against the wife, or by the wife against the husband, nor in a criminal action or proceeding against the husband for abandonment
, failure to support or provide for or failure or neglect to furnish the necessities of life to the wife or the minor children.
