The riddle gives us:

Mr. Green - Mrs. White - Mr. Black __________Mrs. Black - Mr. White _________

Or

Mr. Green - Mrs. White - Mr. Black __________Mr. White - Mrs. Black _________

The blanks need to be filled with the three remaining people: Mr. Brown, Mrs. Brown, and Mrs. Green.

I just tried plugging them in and came up with this combination that works:

Mr. Green - Mrs. White - Mr. Black - Mrs. Green - Mr. Brown - Mrs. Black - Mr. White - Mrs. Brown

I'm not sure if that's the only way to solve it, but I don't immediately see any other ways it would work.
