If I’m married can I file bankruptcy without my spouse?

Yes you can, but joint debts would still be the responsibility of your spouse. If you file jointly then you would be able to get rid of joint debts. If one spouse only has non-dischargable debts then it may be advisable for only one spouse to file the bankruptcy.
