Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Instances….of short courtships and speedy marriages, which have turned up trumps – I beg your pardon – which have turned out well, after all.
turn up trumps = come to a happy end; have the best of luck
Thanks for your efforts.
