    Re: The couple were happily married and were quite well matched with each other.

    I prefer the original, probably because of the use of "well-matched" which is often used to take about couples.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "Well-matched" could mean the marriage was match-made, couldn't it?
