Why was bean not lenited here?

I think its because it is "A" wife and not "THE" wife, which would be "a' bhean mhath." At least that is my understanding but I am just learning, like you. Maybe a moderator or a more advanced learner can explain?

She needs to make up her mind. The previous sentance was "Chan eil bean mhath agam." So is her wife good or not? LOL

"When she was good she was very very good But when she was bad she was better!"
