If she converted after marriage and he did not, or if he fall away from the church, then she is not to blame and will not be made to suffer for it. She will be no more cut off from full exhaltation than the single sisters President Benson was talking to.
But a woman can not be exhaulted without her husband..would she become the wife of another man?

"But a woman can not be exhaulted without her husband..would she become the wife of another man?"
I don't know of any official statement saying yes or no to that. Through temple sealings it certainly is possible for her to be sealed to another man after her death but currently only sealings for couples who were legaly married are done, and those still are conditional on the acceptance of both persons.
In the millenium all required temple work for every person who ever lived will be done, so I expect there will be a lot of revelation to reveal the undocumented parts of humanity's family tree and a great sorting out of all the special cases.
What is doctrine is that God will work it out, and in the end a person who falls short in any way will have only themselves and the choices they made to blame, not the actions of any other person, spouse or otherwise.
