my wife did file single because of same SSN. issue, i came out of the interview successfully although they didn't ask me for the tax. i suggest you try your best to fix it but incase you can't do that before his interview then let him know ur genuine reason should he be ask at the interview why you file single.

You'll have to file an amended form.  You could have a professional do it.  Or sometimes the tax software you use has an amendment option. 

tax software is set up to ask questions with easy steps 

you need to follow IRS steps to amend

you need to follow IRS steps to do the W7  and get the ITIN

Turbo tax says it has the ability but you have already filed 

so use the IRS site 

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/nonresident-alien-spouse

and also read in IRS how to amend

OP is not required to do the W7 and get an ITIN for her husband, that is only if she wants to do Married Filing Jointly with him. She can do so if she likes, but she DOES also have the option to do Married Filing Separately, where she does not need an ITIN for her husband. But right now, it doesn't really matter whether she files jointly or separately, what matters NOW is that she amends her taxes to show she is married as it is not legal to file single while married.
