    present perfect

    I know that PRESENT PERFECT is used to express an action happened at an unspecified time before now, so if I would like to ask a person,

    "ARE YOU MARRIED?" OR "HAVE YOU MARRIED?"

    Which is correct?

    Pat: Are you married, Max?
    Max: Yes, I am. What about you, Pat? Are you married?
    Pat: No, I'm not. How long have you been married for, Max?
    Max: I have been married for 3 years. :D

    All the best, :D
