    Default Maybe Mark has taken a little longer to forget her ex-girlfriend

    I had the following question

    In the sentence:

    Maybe Mark has taken a little longer to forget her ex-girlfriend

    Is the grammar correct?

    I believe is present perfect.

    The grammar is correct. But is "Mark" a girl?

    Dear MikeNewYork

    I made a mistake. Mark is a boy.

    Maybe Mark has taken a little longer to forget his ex-girlfriend

    Thanks!
