My spouse and I are each offered FSA at work. Can we both have one?

Yes. But you can’t use both FSAs to pay for the same expense. The maximum amount that can be contributed per FSA is $2,550 for 2016 and $2,600 for 2017. If you have two separate FSA accounts, that means up to $5,200 for 2017 in potential savings.
