Incorrect.

Husband: First 2 steps. Ends up on left foot.

Wife: First 3 steps. Ends up on right foot.

Husband: Second 2 steps. Ends up on left foot again. A total of 4 steps.

Wife: Second 3 steps. Ends up on left foot. A total of 6 steps.

Thus, it always takes a total of 4 steps for the husband and 6 steps for the wife to match their left feet together.

If the husband starts with right, he will always end up with the left foot every 2 steps.

If the husband starts with left, he will always end up with the right foot every 2 steps.

The wife is a special case. The first 3 steps ends up with the right foot. The next 3 steps ends up with the left foot and the next 3 ends up with the right foot again and so on.
