Commas for the One and the Many

Today, a very brief lesson to correct a common punctuation mistake.

Since I only have one wife:

Right: I went to a movie with my wife, Pam.
Wrong: I went to a movie with my wife Pam.

However, I have multiple brothers. Therefore:

Right: I went to a movie with my brother Rick.
Wrong: I went to a movie with my brother, Rick.
