Miserrimus omnis saeculi.

Seneca, Controversiae 2.7:

Miserrimus omnis sæculi maritus: sic contempta absentia mea etiamnunc iniuriam meam nescirem, si qui fecerat tacere voluisset.

I’m the most miserable husband of all time – even now I wouldn’t have known that I’d been wronged in my wretched absence if the man who had done it had wanted to keep quiet.

I am least sure of ‘contempta’ here.
