No, Presumably You and your spouse are the named insureds on your policy. Your Homeowners Insurance policy is Hazard Insurance for your home that protects the insured for covered perils such as fire, wind, hail, theft etc. A Homeowners Policy usually offers Liability coverage which protects the insured(s) for costs associated with liabilities for certain injuries or damages to others or the property of another for which the named insured could be held liable. Since there is no color of law that allows one to be "Liable" to ones self. There would be no expectation of coverage for the death of the named insured or the spouse from your Homeowners Insurance Policy. Although one can certainly sue almost anyone for any thing. In this case the suit would almost certainly fail due to no coverage. The type of Insurance that you would need to cover an accidental death would be Life Insurance or an Accidental Death Policy.
