You can estimate a birth date subsequent to the parent's marriage, or about 20 years after the birth of the mother. It may n ot be exact, but will in all probability be in the right generation.

And I like to add that in a marriage where the birth date of one spouse is unknown making the wife 4 years younger than the husband works well.  It will optimize IMO the chances of finding the missing spouse in a search engine.
And then add {{DateGuess}} to the top of the narrative
