Grey wallpaper doesn't sound very pretty. Maybe you should re-decorate anyway.

'get it off' with your good lady - no chance for the next month.

Re wallpaper -
1.match and patch
2. go for a contrast.
3. Hang a hanging thing.

No way are you going to ge red wine out of wall paper -- unless someone knows better.

You need wine away! http://www.lakeland.co.uk/F/keyword/wine%20away

But in the meantime, if its a good quality paper.... do you have any white vinegar? Plus kitchen paper?

Sponge on white vinegar lightly then blot with kitchen paper, and repeat until stain removed, very difficult with paper though as can tear easily. So don't saturate!

I'm gonna say duct tape... it fixes pretty much anything

You can just replace one strip of paper ..................the damaged strip , or just replace the bit thats stained by removing the piece just past the stain and over lapping with a new matching piece and slicing through them both with a scalpel [ that's what I use ].Then remove the little strip and stick down the new bit .Remember , if the paper's been on a while there will be a slight shading , that's if you have any paper left over .Done this a few times over the years to help out a customer .

Ive said that but shes making me re decorate the whole room.

Put an empty picture frame around the stain and claim it's expensive modern art.

Did you 'rub it with a sponge' while the missus was in bed?

Kiss and makeup, life is too short

Oh, sorry. I may have got the wrong idea. I just thought you were thinking of ways to cheers yourself up (smiley)

Next time just gaffa tape her mouth that way you can get some peace and quiet ;op

lol after arguing you need to make it up to her anyway so just decorate think of the benefits you will get! :-)
