Default WORD formatting with merge data

I am trying to figure out the a way to format varying lines for merging.
it is basically like 2 columns and that may be the way I need to do it. Just checking for any solution to see which way works best.
I have merge fields for name and address. the name field is already formatted per clients request of Prefix Last, First MI
The address field is also formatted in the following format
address1+CRLF
address2+CRLF
City, state zip
If address2 is blank then the city, state zip line is moved up to that position:
address1+CRLF
City, state zip

Looking for a format setup/configuration/tabs/blocking/whatever that would allow me to merge varying left/right info:

name1 name2
address1 address1
city, state, zip address2
city, state zip



name3 name4
address1 address1
address2 city, state zip
city, state zip

Your description suggests you need to use a table with a label merge.
