Names of 8 people (4 married couples) are written down to equally sized papers. Two carbilds are drawn. What is the probability of drawing a married couple? (it is not specified if the cards were drawn at the same time or one-by-one)

2. Relevant equations

na

3. The attempt at a solution

So the probability of drawing a woman is 4/8 the probability of drawing her husband is 1/7 when multiplied the result is 1/14 but the correct answer is 1/7. (non combination solution would be better)
