Mr Leonard Wrong, from Aberdeen in Scotlandshire told his wife of 39 years, 'I told you I was right' on his death bed.
Mr Wrong, 69, lay dying when he remembered getting something right in 1989. The aptly named fool was well known for getting things wrong.
Mary, 67, said 'Everybody told me Leonard was Wrong for me, and they were right. We muddled along nicely, until I met another Man. When I told him his suspicions about me were incorrect, the soppy old duffer took me at my word.
Mr Donald Turn, the couple's bumbling, treacherous Son in Law said: 'Leonard will be well remembered, and at least he died knowing that he was right about something'.
What he was right about is lost to History, who will never divulge her secrets.
When asked the secret of a happy marriage Mary answered 'A decent breakfast, and a good set of earplugs'
