4 couples are going on vacation to a 5-star hotel in Martinique. The receptionist gave them four consecutive rooms with numbers from 1 to 4. The women went upstairs to choose rooms (and each of them stayed to her own room), while their husbands were having a drink at the bar. After some drinks, they decided to go upstairs to their rooms.
Re: 4 couples
Let's call the men A, B, C, and D. Their plan is as follows: A will go to Room 1, B to Room 2, C to Room 3, and D to Room 4. If a man does not see his own wife in the first room, he will then go to the room corresponding to the man whose wife he sees in the first room – e.g. if A sees B's wife in Room 1, he opens Room 2 next; if it's C's wife he sees, he goes to Room 3 next, etc.
