    Default marriage

    Dear teachers and friends,

    I've got a question for you which needs to be confirmed. Now look at the sentences, please.

    Are there any difference between " I am married to Mrs. X " and " I am married with Mrs.X".

    As I was once told that they are different in meaning namely that is "male and female." I mean if it's a male who want to marry, then the preposition is different.

    Thank you very much.

    We don't use married "with" Mrs. X or Mr. X.
    We use married "to" for either gender. :wink:
