    Are "marriage to someone" and "marriage with someone" both correct?

    It depends on the context, you could say, for example; 'You are invited to the marriage of John with or to Jane'. But you would say'I am married to Jane' rather than 'I am married wiyh Jane'.

    Thanks.
    What about:

    "My marriage with (or to?) Sonia was a happy one."
