what is an equivalent idiom for, 'he doesn't deserve something good he already has'? i.e, a beautiful wife who can have much better looking guy than him.

… a very mediocre man is married to a really beautiful, intelligent young woman …
Such a man is sometimes said to be "punching above his weight".
A reference to the sport of boxing, where a fighter is competing in a heavier division than is appropriate for his actual weight.
