Farm Spouse Fairness and Equity Act of 1989 - Amends the Food Security Act of 1985 to treat a husband and wife who each provide active personal management or labor to their farm or to an after-acquired inherited farm as separate persons for farm program payment purposes (thus qualifying them for two separate payments).

Continues a farm's multiyear program payments to a person who receives such farm by way of gift or descent. States that such payments shall: (1) not exceed the previous owner's payments; and (2) continue without regard to other payments received by the new owner from such farm or from other farming operations.
