How does the spanish authorities know how long you stay in the country. Is it done through imigration when your passports are scanned/stamped.

It's not just Spain the whole 'Schengen area', when you enter any of the counties your passport is 'scanned and stamped' the same when you leave.  Austriathe Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. (Brits are now true foreigners since 'Brexit' the same as the rest of the world, what people voted for) 

As per article 53.1.a of Organic Law 4/2000, of January 11, on the rights and freedoms of foreigners in Spain and their social integration, this is supposed to be a serious infraction and it may be punished rather with a fine (from €501 up to €10,000) or with banishment from Spain, depending on the case and then being fined.

In the event that they consent to the ejection, you may likewise be restricted from entering Spain for a time of a maximum of 5 years (anew, depending on the case and scenario).

if your spouse is european ie; irish ect. then you have an automatic right to Residencia as a spouse of a european citizen. 

so if either of you have irish parents or Grandparents, Get that Golden Ticket, and get the irish passport
