A. Assuming all birthdays are equally likely and that people do not choose mates based on birthdays, the probability is simply 1 in 365 (ignoring leap years). That comes to a mere 0.27 percent. Actually, births are more likely in certain months, so the probability of a husband-wife match is a bit greater than this simple estimate. But whatever the odds, “happy birthday birthday” to you both!
