One often sees gravestones for a married couple where one is deceased
and the other is merely scheduled to be so at some future date. I
have never seen such a marker in place for a couple *neither* of whom
has snuffed it -- except for this one:


It's been there for around ten years. So far as I know (and I have
mutual friends with them), neither Jim nor Marilyn even has a cold.
